All lives matter

You cry

While Muslims cower in fear

Abused, segregated, lynched

All lives matter

You shout

As Yemenites scream for sanctuary

And you refuse refugees

All lives matter

You deplore

Yet you sexualise women

And the patriarchy thrives

All lives matter

You type

Inside the safety

That white skin grants

Where were your shouts

When a man begged for breath?

Where were your declarations

When a woman was raped?

Where are your donations

When war steals the screams of a child?

If all lives matter

Do something
