Trendy Revolutionaries (Poetry)

Artwork by: Arisa Niwa
Our generation’s revolutions are flawed
We are frauds…
We’re not down for the cause
We’re down so we can receive a round of applause

Our ancestors used to lose sleep
Our ancestors were never discrete
Our ancestors used to march the streets
But we send out a few tweets and retreat

At this rate things will never be fair
But if it’s not affecting us… we never really cared
One day we’ll grow old and say: “look at what we did”
I feel sorry for our kids

-Jon Chambers
