The final day... one last inspiration...

"Where Will You Aim Your Hate?"

Warning voiced in black and white
No question in his breath
Nowhere to run, but run the race
Gaining ground, look back, see Death

In the coming revolution
Let me be the first to die
For I will not pull your tooth
Nor will I pluck your eye

Let me offer both my cheeks
To your bloody fisted hand
Strike me twice but hate me once
Cold reparations flood the land

I believe the words Iíve heard
While most would rather listen to lies
So long as one distorts the truth
So long as some are alive, hatred never dies

Once the breed you despise are dead
Who will you decide to hate?
And when thereís only one kind left
Will you decide your brothers fate?

I had forgotten when the actual time of closing was and it came and went before I entered my piece which was ready to go but then I got distracted!  I'm sorry I missed out, but all in all, JJ, the competition gathered some worthy offerings.  Best of luck to those who wind up placing!   ~~Jadey
