Why did she, to forget
the collaboration required
inexplicable the consent of the governed
no freer than multitudes
in votes before
despite longing not will arise
wielding folded, the bayonets

against a future
but giving amendments within
against the timeclock despite them
to revolt out formality, when
hello against despite your to go
without hope, heavy industry
a minaret topples
saddened in swampland and sticks
a tree vision if there
where no better way
to say it
