When we were dangerous, other kinds of people talked over us, never
listening to us,
we were expected to give undivided attention. When we were silent, they
chalked it up to lack of intellectual capacity.
When we wore young clothes and athletic clothes, those with adult
bodies and an aversion for strife wore skirts and suits that cost more
than a month’s rent and complained that they were strapped for cash
When we were underground, they raised the prices of vitamin D-3
When there were disruptions, they cried and got sad, and sang protest
songs, and drank artisanal whiskey and slaughtered.
We were told not to get emotional or else they would lock us up.
