Jus Soli:
Right to citizenship via soil
Jus Sanguinis:
Right to citizenship via blood.

What if your blood is soiled by another land?
And your soil refuses your blood?
Like how an aggressive immunity response rejects a foreign body.
No amount of immunosuppressive drug will ever teach that soil to accept.
No level of transfusion will wash the blood of its dirt.

And though I have rights that are protected by the law
Those rights were granted half-heartedly.
