another victory comes cheap

a wonder that we cast no shadows here
the sun's not bright enough to give them shape
still now the gate is just as wide agape
as if no horrors had been coming near
we know that far worse beings shall appear
and then there'll be no option to escape
but only to surrender bow and scrape
and hope that backs are strong enough to bear
not just the weight but also all the wrongs
that history imposed on other forms
you know how much you want to creep and cower
and yet you're forced to join in the songs
proclaim the change as one to better norms
and hope these masters won't have a long hour
