Revocation



Every metric of class is meaningless
except privilege.

Accomplishment doesn't prove you unique
but that you were adequate, and tried, and were noticed.

“Responsibility” is what they call what they want you to do.
Assert your power to choose (to lose (a ruse?)).

With every choice we make more is lost than gained,
but we must keep choosing.

Arbitrary contrarians promoting phony ceremony,
nesting in the intersection of lines,

they see no difference between “rights” and “privileges,”
and they are in love with revocation.

They are redefining “making love” every day
and will continue until we accept that it means “to consume.”

There are monsters, and then there are those called monsters
by those with imaginations inadequate to account for them.
