Copy And Paste

Revised from 2017.

You must demonstrate
your devotion to The Struggle
through copying and pasting

You will bring down the State that way

Perhaps someone will be moved
Begin their own path forward
through your impassioned mashing of keys

There is a place for some of us there

I won’t deny that sometimes
I feel less timid after sharing
then seeing who liked it

and who shared it

I have a spreadsheet of justice
shorter perhaps
than Santa Claus’s

Mine’s labeled naughty nice and dangerous

It has columns
and pivot tables
where I keep track of shares and likes

Sometimes I make a little mark

about those
who never
do anything

My spreadsheet tells me who to love

Copy and paste this if
you want to end injustice
or stop cancer

Demonstrate it or be suspect

Someone is always 
and listening
