Revolt - Aisha Nelson


cooked up in a cozy crazy corner somewhere
is another radical plot
to topple the people at the top
to jerk the common boat

but they forgot
whether we all knew
whether we all eschewed
the plot or not,
we’re all into it together
we all sink in together

thanks for our common complacent mediocrity
thanks for their lack of nothing but tact
thanks they turned and became and replaced
the very people they had toppled

so, yes,
long live the craze
long live unrest
long live distress
short live progress
short live us


short live us all!
