i will stop petitioning

i
will
stop

petitioning for a greater audience,
a grander stage on which to perform

my tricks of the trade
will remain
in the soul possession of a few
dedicated people

whom i care for


there is money enough in the world
so i give you my love
for free


life's too short
so let us dance to the sound of bombs

in a crooked world
a proper action is revolution


one wish in a world at war:
a day of peace


so
i
invite a modest, brave soul
to take interest
