Turning Backs Away With Shut Lips

There is a campaign that permits,
Denying truth an existence.
And if allowed to continue...
Threatens a valued humanness.

Blinded in stubbornness,
Our very presence will become dismissed.
Finding no refuge in silence...
Nor an ignorance lifted into eternal bliss.

And turning backs away with shut lips,
Has created today's array of conflicts.
In a convenience so many have come to enjoy...
Unapposed and unrestricted!
