Poet’s United has the mid-week motif: Acceptance.
What has acceptance
Ever given us?
Acceptance is the status quo.
Acceptance is more of the same.
Acceptance is the decision to be powerless.
Acceptance is the passive agreement that the current state of affairs is,
if not desirable, is at least unchangeable and fixed for the foreseeable future.
Acceptance is the spineless indifference to the poor of the world,
to the hungry,
to the sick,
to the lonely,
to the lost,
to the cruelty,
to the pollution of our air and water,
to the raping of this planet by people or, worse,
corporations who do not have our welfare in their minds.
Acceptance is indifference.
Well, fuck that for a joke.
That’s not acceptable.
