I was a socialist till I realized patriarchy was running the agenda

I was a socialist until I realized most of the people I want to serve would be considered too poor to pay party dues too rude to follow instructions too Black to accept all the white supremacy too fem to be taken seriously too soft to be heard and too spiritual to assassinate God

I was a socialist till I realized we were just

Praising

Old white men

Again

At the expense of Black women

As usual

I was a socialist

Until I realized we just changed the face of patriarchy

Only to not at all change the face of patriarchy

Just made an elite class again

Just wanted war again

As if wanting revolution

is just Soooooooo

Revolutionary

Seriously if we get real

What would be revolutionary

Would be to hate hate

Love love

Go to war against war

And SERVE

Not kill

The people

Humanity and that’s it

To try understanding

vilification so as to stop it

And that’s it

I was a socialist till I realized patriarchy was running the agenda
