There’s that old saying,
That the pen is,
Mightier than the sword.
But the metaphor is real,
The pen itself is a blade,
A sleek and versatile weapon.
A quick flick with a skilful hand,
And you can disembowel the dogma,
Of a soulless politician.
Cross swords with the dull,
Blunted blade of a statist,
And you can shake the foundation,
Of the whole coercive system,
Tearing into it like the knife of a surgeon.
With enough practice,
You can shake all their operations,
Shake the tanks, the soldiers,
The solid lines of riot cops,
And silence their machine guns.
Expose that corporate elitism,
That cultivates political relations,
In the hopes of subsidisation
Funded entirely by that,
Legalised theft called, taxation.
The pen is a blade just as powerful,
As any act of civil disobedience,
Use that blade, son,
Fight for your liberty,
And get yourself free.
