Turn on the lights…turn on the color.
Let’s see everything there is to discover.
Strip away illusion…strip away wishes.
See it for the war, the damage of militias.
See it for the fire, for the smoke & embers.
See the world as it is, not how one remembers.
Open up the truth for all to witness.
See our leaders for their unfitness.
Once you’ve cried you’re last tear of mourning.
Scream in protest & attack without warning.
Attack the precepts, the quo & institutions.
Demand change & growth demand restitutions.
Fight battles bitter & grim. Learn from loss.
Or be a collaborator…happy to live in the gloss.
