Shut the Fuck Up

VOLUME is the worst authority
loud BOMBASTIC order
never clear, but dear to follow
shout, OBEY
JUMP, how high
to do one better than the SCREAM
repeat
over and over, come again
hammered HARD by repetition
march, MARCH
bow, KNEEL, memorize
comfortable routine
turned up to ELEVEN
deaf and well-rehearsed
surrendered to the verse
the chorus, DRUM and thrum
as cops come
neighbors complain
NOISE and time and new authority
against me
my band
they’d love to silence
stop the song
cease the dance
end the beauty… in the name of the law
when extinction comes
man will have plenty of time
to be quiet
so for now LET’S NOT!!!11!
