Self-destruct Button.

You don't get it.
You don't get that
evil starts to devour itself,
once it's done with its
perceived enemies

and you'll be
next in line
when everyone else
is gone

and when you end up
with us
again,
ask yourself:
was it worth it?

You don't get it,
that your train
has the same
destination
as ours,
that we fight
for ourselves
as well as you -

you don't get it,
you don't get
that racism
and fascism
and the denial
of human rights
are a self-perpetuating
cycle of destruction -
demolishing everything
until there's nothing
and no one
left to destroy.
