Overly online, flush with paper-tiger activism
Beloved, be brave, show a bit of range
Stop boring us with neck-up cynicism
When push comes to shove, nothing ever seems to change

Can we trust that you'll stir up good trouble
Or will you fret the possibilities riotous
Can we trust you to root through the rubble
Of callous, protofascist funded violence

Humor us, answer when injustice knocks
Don't feign ignorance, deafness, or preoccupation
Equity shan't wait, fuck lobbyist roadblocks
Unbought democracy will rebuild our blessed nation
