A sneak peak at a poem from my book, Class Action, coming January 23rd. Enjoy…
What happens when the walls all fall down?
Everyone knows the tapestry is woven.
We’re all here all aware we’ve been chosen.
Everyone catches the strings attached as we
crash into each other’s axis all irrational.
But what happens, when the strings unravel?
When all the roads have been traveled, and
the culture shock shatters, where will you be?
Home sitting along on your throne of victory?
Hoarding batteries and harvesting preservatives
or sleeping comfortably with your superlatives?
Patiently, praying for manifestations,
co-creating revelations— level UP playstation.
See, at some point pi has to repeat itself!
And any way you cut it
nets are bad for your health.
We’ve got to turn this tapestry upside down,
shake it from the ground up.
Hold up our fists and rock it,
building futures not for profit.
A force so great no stopping it.
Changing vibes on a dime lifelong cause
one day we’ll all be singing the same song,
dinging the same dong.
Things won’t seem so wrong …
Get a nice whiff of
the whole world turning on a paradigm shift,
See our rebirth of mankind unfold all along.
One thought held on the tongue of everyone all at once,
that’s my want, so come on. #ulit
So, let me take you away to a far away place
where face and race don’t decide who prays.
Where you and I equal unity,
the sooner we learn how to believe in community.
Where what we wear matters less than how we wear it,
and what we trade fair matters less than how we share it.
Cause what happens when this tapestry unravels?
Somebody’s gotta put it back together, I’d imagine,
in a different fashion. Let’s make it happen
in a rebirth of magic.
