Borders Are (Poem)

Serj: Borders surround.  Borders bound.  Borders marginalized.  Borders frame.  Borders divide.  Borders kill.  Borders are the ultimate man made walls separating and differentiating us beyond our cultures, beyond 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, 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 separations in its undignified definitions.  There are people dying in Kashmir every day ????? ????? border.  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 over their borders.  Their predecessors.  Their borders, their borders, their borders, their borders, their borders.  Borders represent the foundation of civilization, expansionism, abuse of capitalism, and presumptuous occupation.  Floods don't recognize borders.  Earthquakes don't recognize borders.  Diseases, famine, drought, don't recognize borders.  Why the fuck should we? Thank you.  Dobry vecer [Good evening].  You guys look beautiful, thanks for being here tonight.  Czech National Symphony Orchestra, ladies and gentleman.  Conductor, Jan Chalupecky
