Covid 1984

 
"Show me your papers"
 
To operate in this exchange
A divide of marked intent
Set aside stalls for each race
Needle intentionally bent,
 
Mouths one thing but audio dubbed
Those segregated must leave our place
Clothes like a thug or wearing scrubs
Walk in the slave mas'ser with jive face,
 
"Sit in your new space"
Only we decide if you are worthy
Covered mind in place
Authoritarian winter comes early.
