Overthrow by Adam Levon Brown

What is a life worth?

 

We don’t quantify life at birth

Our sickness is a learned behavior

in our future I see no savior.

When innocent protesters are subjected to violence

they expect us all to sit here in peaceful silence?

Justice must eventually be served

even with a system that it is completely curved

in a way that favors white supremacy

and grants every killer cop clemency

African Americans make up 12% of America

yet 45% of the prison population is black,

what is this hysteria?

Black men and women taken from us in assassinations

What the fuck is wrong with this system that says fuck positive relations?

We must unite and fight this fascist machine

and overthrow the system that presents itself

as shiny and clean

It’s a system operating like a madman with a gun

it’s a theory and practice that we should all shun

Take the fight directly to the neoliberal offenders

Take it to the military industrial complex

and the crooked money lenders

Take it to the capitalists waging war on

the majority and the earth

Take it those who think they inherited this planet upon birth

Until we unite and stand

to directly oppose our so called leaders

our health, our community, our country, and our planet teeters on the brink of total destruction

overturn Citizens United and McCutcheon.

  1. Love the dissident quality – echoes alot of the conversations my wife and I have been having. I’ve been fortunate enough in my encounters with the law to stand in appearance as a clean cut white male from a good family which has afforded me leniency. The time that I have been served and the experience I have had while running amuck on the streets has also given perspective however to the radical injustice that has been let apathetically (by myself included) to run rampant across the general population as a whole. I commend the writing style and your message, I’m curious what kind of responses you’ve received back.
