‘A nod to William’

All of this world is a cage, 
and we only offer prayers. 
Divided by imaginary lines, 
ignoring logic and naysayers.

Our values forged by folklore.
Refuting the merits of science.
Extolling the virtues of peace;
Enforced by total compliance.

We hate the specter of death; 
still, global warfare rages on.
Lost in a struggle for control;
Kings accept their lost pawns.

The price of freedom is truth;
only justice can equalize man.
To escape these locked cages;
apply hope with open hands.
