Unlocked, loaded, let your words flame papercandle-flame
set arson to thought-control, combust news.
Pyro-dissident: touch fire to their views
Reveal new topographies, mind-shaper.
Spark a candle – a single thin taper.
Subvert what worldlings dare not refuse.
The herd will always revile or accuse;
but contours alter for you, landscaper –
so chastise darkness. Proclaim what is right.
(When their stable burns down due to your light
or smoldering, implodes, it’s not your fault.)
If the status quo will not acquiesce
then muster another frontal assault.
There’s no shame in a flame; just incandesce…
