to be political to me isn’t a game

its not a show

its not a mask to take off and hang up at the the end of the day

its not something I do to show how PC and down with social justice I am

to be political to me means being willing to stand up for what I believe in

publically and privately

and being willing, like so many of my ancestors, to both live and die for it

I feel like a relic of the past, surrounded by so many young people, older ones too, who live like immature cowards,

breathing on borrowed time

because they’ve sold their souls to the very things those who came before them fought against

whether they called it sj or being political is, in some ways, irrelevant
