[October 11]: Oppression

Posted on the 11 October 2012 by Sarahkasm @Sarahkasm
It is not enough 
That I had seen it with my eyes, 
Heard it with my ears ,
And tasted it with my tongue, 

But I had also  

Kissed it with my lips, 
And dipped my fingers in  
Its dark, thick ink 
Knuckle deep

Watching as the dripping tap turns into 

An open faucet

Too afraid to try my hand at plumbing

Yet, with all the scrubbing and cleansing 

The stains would not come off.
