I want the world to shut the fuck up and listen!
Not because what I have to say is important.
But because we have become a nation of talkers
with no one listening.
And lord forbid you open your mouth to contribute
cuz there is always someone right there ready
to talk right over you until you are quiet
or stick their boot in your open mouth
to leverage higher ground from which to caw
with absolutely nothing of value to say.
Yammering until my head escapes into somewhere quiet
Squawking until everyone with something interesting
to say has been silenced.
Until we are all just a cage of starlings
nattering on that no one even hears.
