freestyle sonnet #057: PLZ NO MORE FOLK SONGS AT PROTESTS, LET'S SING DEAD PREZ INSTEAD

Preaching to the choir don't inspire motivated
response. Leaders fueled by ego are nothing more
than (un)just desperadoes inebriated
with attention, but bound to abandon, therefore

without people forming local alliances,

across shared social constructs designed to divide
and conquer, nothing will change. Social sciences
can theorize new world-systems, yet it's still Ride

or Die in real life. You either are down, or too

far up to risk it... I mean, we're all caught up in
systemic bullshit centuries deep, before blue
and red branded campaigns. We lose if either win.

Uncertainty is scary, yet wondrous as well,

because fresh systems rise from where the failed ones fell.
