I wrote this after an assembly about prejudice and discrimination

Thay all say they have it worst off

The people who get targeted by those

Who do not neccessarily understand

Their cultures or their lives

So they cry out for justice

Against those who wrong them

But I too have something to say

Something that has been lost

In the sea of racism and sexsim

Of bullying and cruelty to other humans

Of people calling the travellers 'gyppos'

Because they do not understand them

Our message went unheard

By all who could so easily have listened

What is your reason for targeting us?

We are not different in any way

We are not evil, or cruel, or murderous

We are not as your leaders tell you

We may practice magick but we are not evil

We do not pray to your god but we are not of your devil

We are of Satan, we are witches in truth

Why must you call us evil, I ask you?

Why discriminate that which you do not understand?

Which you will never understand?

Which we alone understand fully?

What is your reason, your valid point?

Why target us?
