Since When Did a Map Become Pizza?

By [email protected] | Oct 13, 2022

The border is a line that birds cannot see,
Yet for humans, well.
Isn’t a different story?

I thought humanity meant unity, but how could I forget?

The white man ran through us with a pizza cutter many many years ago.
Man divided us, while eating us.
Seeing his favourite toppings he grabs;
Since when did a map become pizza?

Man fights for a slice, while birds above share crumbs.
And that’s why the birds fly free, while man can only ever think 'me'.

I thought humanity meant unity,
But I guess,
We’ve since changed the recipe.
