MOTHERS OF REVOLUTION
by Fern Capella
we are mothers but want more than the archaic relations
of man and wife isolated in suburban sedation,
shaped like claymation in lives packaged and produced for plastic presentation.
we deserve more than one standard of sanity and subversion,
more than the popular and predictable version of
selfless victim murderhood, where we slice and strip
till we’ve ripped and ripped us to rags
to gag the baby spit, pretty up that split lip or wipe blood off the floor.
we reject hyped hysteria of insidious mainstream media,
and block the desensitizing shock talk and jock stalking
violence and racial offenses from deterring our relentless
movement to radicalize our recedent enviroment.
infotainment spawns resentment by fear and filling
our inner ear for human communication with
systematic separations of race and sex classifications,
affecting our intent to interact without judgment.
we are wailing flesh pressed in the spokes of mass destruction,
a physical obstruction to the crush of western justice
violently disgusted by
poverty, fast food, complacency, big business, miseducation,
racism, sexism, ageism, devisive methods of controlling mass populations
through television, media encouraged self derision, nationalism,
patriotism, fascism, genocide, and absolutely this atrocious war.
we are prepared to fight to defend our right to independent
freedoms and expressions, are always fighting in existence to destroy
the imperialistic oppression the us leaks like radiation
over our solar galaxies and star formations
and will continue to fight, babies on back and beside us on
the front lines in sight of Zion and deliverance,
vehemently resisting the reigning cysts on civilization,
persisting to eradicate the disease of greed and corruption.
we are invested in this earth,
it is worth our children’s lives, we can’t leave them to fry
salvaging poisoned pieces of water land and sky
so we won’t stop fighting till we die
that while we held breath we heaved flames against
the monstrous vehicle of lies and ecstatically
served this life opening their conscious eye
and demolishing the disguise.
we write, read, shout, breathe, battle, breed, breastfeed and bleed
for dissolution of this destructive nation.
we are Mothers Of Revolution.
