If innocence is a crime II

If dreaming, aiming of a better tomorrow

Treading the path of hope and utopia

Is a crime we must bury and burrow

If freedom is a risk to be contained

Legislated against, fought and curtailed

For the right to hate and discriminate

If money is to be prioritised and elevated

No matter the human consequence

The sickness and death it has cultivated

If the earth is to be raped and plundered

Single mindedly ignoring the devastation

Extracted, polluted and sundered

If racism and sexism are to be elevated

Once again to the halls of power

With impunity lust and hate never sated

If innocence is the crime of our days

Aiming for human rights and justice

Equality and solidarity, lost in a maze

Let us not pretend there’s a place for us
