People died for the

Eight hour work day. We work

Longer, on their graves.
Austerity means

Rich tightening the belts of

The poor. Such helpers.

Work at a church and

Realize how much of life is a

Ministry. Weird huh?

Organizing is

Not just smoke and mirrors and

Public image tho.
And hierarchy does

Not look good on anyone. 

Grasping at power. 
Do the work. Show up.

Then you won’t have to make false

Claims of importance.

We are so good at

Infighting.  Cointelpro

Isn’t needed here
What is the statute

Of limitations on your

Bitter attitude

8/15/17

When internet makes

You upset go to the herb 

Garden. Eat a leaf
Fresh motherwort leaf

Is bitter and distracting

And helps anxiety
Blocking people you

Don’t agree with is a non

Starter movement plan
If you don’t know what

I know I won’t show patience

Only cold disdain
Now how does that work

How does anyone change and

How is this healthy
If someone makes a

Mistake send them swiftly to

The gulag. No hope.

Post-protest self care

Hey y’all

 If you saw the person get killed today, or witnessed violence, or suffered violence, chances are high you have been traumatized.

 You may not make the best choices in this state. You may need to do your self care. You may need to step back. 

Damage from this sort of shit is real but it doesn’t have to totally rule you. Your mental health is important. Slow down to take care. 

If you feel totally frantic, urgent, adamant, you may really be the one who needs a time out for self care. Ask for help if you need it.
