PROTEST (Janus Ponders)

PROTEST (Janus Ponders)

 

a

legion of

pawns

unified by ideology

need to die

pointlessly/publically

to change the minds of

kings

(protest, provoke, then wait for pity)

 

hope is hope in peace

but, unfortunately

change

is hope with tired, bloodied hands

and the tears of the choiceless

preaching against violence

before another execution

for your evening broadcast  

 

my peers

with puffed out chests

talk of revolution

in the sanguine classrooms of open minds  

without knowing the difference

between death, politic(k)s and murder

without seeing what it looks like

smells like

feels like

the way it’s due to infest and haunt

there’s no more Panthers (despite what you may have heard on FOX News)

no more SDS

just us

the weary and the hungry ones

to question our history books

to work for a better world

but yet, like all the rest

I just don’t know how

to salvage this savage howl

of bad and worse decisions
