signature move is to hide
'til it is all gone
explaining is the wheel of life
and the steam that makes it all go
it isn't much of a show
but I still go
I had to start a double life
just to get by and take sides
time wasted is time well spent
Reading philosophy and teh classics
feeling like a million bucks
but broke of money
and rich of stories
knowing all along where I was going
I could always see in the dark
which is half the time
depends on what season of the year it is
the Sun follows a strict path
and really doesn't deviate
unlike all of us
who are unpredictable and shallow and
all at once
mirrors and camera lenses reflect us
what did they say about me
in the end
we ask

#Ferguson, day 70

"Today, the 70th day of this nightmare, some may wonder why we have yet to stop – to stop chanting, stop marching, stop occupying .
But we have not yet found peace because we do not yet know justice. Therefore we, together with our allies, will continue to occupy the streets and the American consciousness until the book is closed."
