Curfew the Night by Amjad Majid

Curfew the streets,
the schools, our homes,
curfew the news,
the newspapers, the radio,
the internet,
the television channels
Curfew our speech,
our movement,
our protests,
our mourning,
our plight

Curfew the truth
Curfew the night
Curfew freedom itself
if you will
if you dare
Curfew hope
Curfew life
and still, you will find
Our one death divides you
into a frenzy of fear
You are paranoid and afraid
but fear not
one day,
we will free you from that fear.

Amjad Majid is the founder/editor of Inverse Journal.
