If You Tolerate

Image

The future teaches you to be alone
The present to be afraid and cold
So if I can shoot rabbits
then I can shoot fascists.

Bullets for your brain today
But we’ll forget it all again
Monuments put from pen to paper
Turns me into a gutless wonder

Gravity keeps my head down
Or is it maybe shame
At being so young
and being so vain.

Holes in your head today
But I’m a pacifist
I’ve walked La Ramblas
but not with real intent.

And on the street tonight
An old man plays
with newspaper cuttings of his glory days.

and

If you tolerate this
then
your children will be next…
