Pandora Scooter is excused from protesting today,
Her dog ate her self righteous indignation.
Pandora Scooter cannot demonstrate today,
She caught a bad case of nuance yesterday and has been up all night throwing up her strident black and white thoughts.
Pandora Scooter won’t be at the rally today,
Parking is a bitch and public transportation in that area sucks.
Pandora Scooter won’t march today,
Her feet are on strike and don’t like being used for an agenda two sizes too small.
Pandora Scooter isn’t going to the demonstration today
Because I’m no professional protester
Protesting just to protest wherever protesters are heard
I’m not a dog, I don’t come when I hear the word
I choose my issues and my causes carefully
My protestations when heard are weighty
And I just can’t get around the sound of hearing people march to Down with Such and So While out the other side of their face, Revealing it’s all about their ego.
Get it straight
I can’t relate
Don’t bait me
With your great verbal spate
Vapid meaningless words floating lighter than air up into the sky
Don’t reach my mind
But I spy a devolution of a kind hidden within your supposed revolution
Your dissemblance’s reflection in my eye
Stings and brings no joy to me
Honesty would be a relief
The candid truth would blow the roof offa my noggin
That is what I am waitin for
More earth under this floor
More substance of which to adore
More meaning unto come ashore
I am waiting for someone to get to the heart of this matter
Explain to me how blood was splattered and why a life was lost
Explain to me how he got off and at what cost
To us all
In plain terms
Not around the subject, but through it
Don’t dawdle and talk about it, just do it
Tell me the truth, it should be a cinch
And until you do, I won’t move to march an inch.
