Kiwis — the passion to win

This short poem refers to the damage caused by new race-based values in civic and parliamentary representation, health care, the judicial system, education and  throughout society. I wrote it to oppose this fashionable bigotry and begin to draw contending voices together. If you like it, send it on to family, friends, colleagues, media, members of parliament, supporters of these changes or complete strangers.

  • The air comes alive as new zeal fills the good,
  • Conservative values gain ground, as they should,
  • So rejoice as the pillars of freedom, long laid,
  • Find voice once again to be heard and reclaimed.
  • It’s toxic, a right that depends on one’s race,
  • The law need not know of a citizen’s birthplace,
  • So the zealots’ foul coup maps a future so dire
  • That we must resist it, heart staunch and afire.
  • If we unite in this fight for our kin
  • We can seize for our nation the passion to win—
  • Note how our state has the eyes of the world,
  • Our name on their lips as our banners unfurl.
  • These activists cheating their brothers are blind,
  • They don’t see we’re angry they’re planning a crime.
  • The contemptible rogues will be filling their purse,
  • Robbing their mates! What in Hell could be worse?
  • Their snarling is weak as they mock and offend,
  • But we’ll still not draw swords on these traitors,
  • Nor in our wrath will we snap as they bait us.
  • We’ll just take a pause; and speak truth, as to friends.
