Revolution

There will be no petition to sign, no manifesto to read
no flag to wave, no anthem to sing.
There will be no soundtrack for our nostalgia
because the revolution will not be centralized.

There will be no leaders or followers
no winners or losers
There will be no beginning, middle or end
because the revolution will not be centralized.

If you can respond, you are response-able.
If you are a passenger, you are the crew.
If you want to be a spectator, you have to be part of the spectacle
because the revolution will not be centralized.

We will not have to agree
we will not have to conspire
we will not even have to fully understand
because the revolution will not be centralized.

"Quietly and sanely this new encyclopaedia will, not so much overcome these archaic discords, as deprive them, steadily but imperceptibly, of their present reality." — World Brain, H.G. Wells, 1937

The revolution cannot be built, designed, or engineered; it can only grow. You are the seed, you are the soil, and you are the buzzing of the bee.
