The Chemistry of Reaction


Action and reaction are equal and opposite;
This is physics. This is the way someone that is nothing
Considers that he is a force. So from a push or a pull,

Propaganda is shoved down like pizza down
His throat with piss labeled as lemonade.
He is not a force; this is why he does not lead well.

I am not a revolution someone will cook as television
Jihad, for who is it that leads, that is not helpless, useless or
Clueless when we created our leaders in our own image?

I fear that we are a circle, a change that is
Likely to change back to what we are changing from!
