participate

 

to survive
in your skin
in this dead place
 
you participate in humor

that allowed them to see you

as a person
 
not a thing
and it worked
you are accepted
 
but now you can't stop
and you are 
an active participant 
 

in perpetuating societal oppression 

against those like you
by those unlike you

 

to survive
in your skin
in this dead place
you participate
