A Pair Of Boots

misplaced
confidence
in the process
will lead you
to camps

undue
trust in your
leaders
will bring you
to blindness

minimized
disruptions
of the underlings
will obscure for you
how your comfort is warfare

trivialized
aggression
toward those oppressed
will lead you to
a pair of boots

buttery boots
broken in
as if they were
made for you

you will put them on
you will step out in them
you may draw some stares but 
you will explain them away 

as all you have to wear
just a pair of boots
like many others
like all the others
