Borders Are (Poem)

Serj: Borders surround.  Borders bound.  Borders marginalized.  Borders frame.  Borders divide.  Borders kill. Borders are the ultimate man made wall separating and differentiating us beyond our cultures, beyond our beliefs.  Borders are subjective, unnatural lines drawn by humans delineating land, water, and air.  If borders were natural, other animals, in fact all beings would be bound by them.  Indigenous cultures never recognized borders.  Cognizant of the fact that the land owns us and not the other way around.  Borders lead to war, occupation, bigotry, and even genocide.  Worst of all, borders are a deceptive yet constant reinforcement of the notion that we are alone.  Separate from each other and all things around us.  The multi-layered borders of our lives stratify separation in its undignified definition.  There are people dying in Kashmir due to border disputes.  Shots are fired daily between North and South Korea.  The Berlin wall separated the German people for a half a century.  Israel and Palestine continue to endure conflict.  Modern day Turkey felt it had to carry out genocide to protect its borders.  Their borders, their borders.  Borders represent the foundation of civilization, expansionism, abuse of capitalism, and presumptive occupation.  Floods don't recognize borders.  Earthquakes don't recognize borders.  Diseases, famine, drought, don't recognize borders.  There is no reason why we should either.  ????? ????? ????? [In Russian].  It's an honor and privilege for us to be here tonight.  Thank you for coming.  We're completing honored to be playing with the uh, Symphony Orchestra Globalis.  So have a great time.
