They told us to be curious
To not shy away from raising our hands.
They said there were no stupid questions,
Only stupid answers.
So we ask them about systemic racism and
intergenerational trauma,
About hate crimes and bloody politics
The normalisation of injustice.

We never get the answers,
Only excuses and lies,
A journalist is killed somewhere,
Elsewhere, a student is gagged.

In a system so deeply rigged?
We badger on incessantly—
Till there’s nothing left to lose.
