to get in and once you are in, it is not a lifetime warranty
but warrants your blood
what is this utopia you are searching for
in colonized lands
unroot their reach and reverse
what are these utopias you are making
for your descendants
blood and from water
that will look to you as an ancestor
and give thanks for a rebirthed path
that is not limited in its limitlessness
that the imperial construct
but do not orchestrate our wonder
and bruja magic.
