we’re not serious when we are seventeen
arthur rimbaud

nor are we serious at 45
even if we make a go of it
we should serious it up

shouldn’t we

to quote another poet
‘to tell the truth, uh oh, that’ll start the revolution’

are we as t-rex said
children of the revolution

i’m gonna start right here
i’m gonna occupy

my jeans

gonna make a stand
by sitting down

declaring the right to the siesta
poets with day jobs

the right to fair housing
and family
good food and loving company

uh oh, that’ll start the revolution
