06 Nov 2016 – On the Meaning of ‘Rigged’

Everyone angry,
everybody past the point
of lucid discourse.

Lied to for so long,
told to vote and shut our traps,
and take what’s offered!

It’s revolution
when you won’t do what you’re told
by those who’ve screwed you,

and now they tell us:
‘stakes have never been so high –
go vote and like it?’

A vote is wasted
only if it’s cast in fear –
and we can stop this!
