NONPARTICIPATORY STANCE
(5/24/19)


sure

they
say

we
get it

you don't
want
to play

you don't
believe
in all
that society
has to offer

you keep
to yourself

you think
that by doing
nothing
that at least
you are doing
nothing bad

but unless
you're doing
good
out there

the bad
will find
you

as it
finds
all of us

the rest
of us
at least
have the good
to balance
the other

go ahead

shake
your head

isolate

and wait
for something
good
to happen
to you

there's
only one thing
that comes
at the end
of that wait
