An Invisible Veil

Because the cunning of black and the innocence of white
is an invisible veil for your eyes
A filter of fragmentation
distillation, crystallisation
This, that, those, these, them, us
clear as pus

Because we know where to go for good advice
bad drugs
sporting prowess
mathematical genius
and rational thought

Because we know who holds the guns and the keys to the bank
and who will clean up after us
and who will build the road
and draw the map

Because the map has been drawn
because we have the key and all the legends
that we will ever need
to win the race
which is, after all, not for the swift
but for the blind
