Elegy for OWG

Written with TIC

I am OWG,

The oppressor.

An Old White Guy.

I have lived a life of privilege,

Which I did not earn,

And did not deserve.

I have ravaged brown races,

Demeaned and diminished women, 

Gluttonized the world.

Now the pendulum swings,

And I will pay.

Like ancient captured Kings,

Sons slaughtered before their eyes,

I will witness the cleansing of my years.

It matters not I lived without malice.

I am OWG and I must pay.
