Cosmopolitan

What is cosmopolitan

When they march into your house

And they burn down your street?

What is anything

When they storm into the town

And they terrify your son

Into telling them you're lying?

Teach yourself

How to understand

That change is permanent

And that this won't last forever

But something in the reflections

From gun barrels

And from polished boots

Tells you that you won't last forever

Either.
