"Reason for Revolution"

by Jeph Johnson


As those considered legendary

Slowly erode into infamous 

And everything counterfeit 

Reemerges legitimate 


There comes a time

In our enlightened evolution

To revolt:

The root word of "revolution"


It does not mean 

To orbit 

Or circle the wagons 

Or forfeit


Not seeking control; 

Instead freedom from it

So the slogan remains:


"Land of the free, 

Home of brave"


And is not disempowered 

To read:


"Land of the enslaved,

Home of the coward"
