Songless Bird (a poem by Jack)

Nothing to gain… Everything to lose…

Peace from above… War from below… Yet war has been declared from above…

And we’re all feeling it’s glow.. White hot ember burning holes through our consciousness…

One man stands up!

And it’s just another toe tag to add to a pile of indifference…

Put em on a pop culture pedestal… JFK….Malcolm… ODB..

But let their message rot with their corpse…

Necro.. Negro… Spook..

Who’s dead… Who’s alive..

From the ashes we rise… Because you can’t kill fate… Like the Phoenix we carry on undaunted.. Fighting…

Singing a song that never ends… The song bird echoes…

And the others naturally chime in…

When will you sing… Or is waiting idly on the sideline the only reality you see..

Football… Christ… Emmy… Blow.. Al Qaeda…

Are these the truths that resonate…

Holding your voice hostage… Singing a mute song that has no melody…

Yet we have everything to gain because we’ve lost it all…

A perpetual war…that knows no end… Like yin hating yang and yang constantly fighting to prove its love for yin…

Either speak or forever be silenced… Either sing along or be crushed by the spirit of the movement…
