+Art-Weather Underground (America)

Who knows what                
Social movements              
Are born      
(It don't get a day off-      
Not when people      
are involved;    
Humanoids ie    
From some      
Far flung planet)             
In the university’s                    
Boiler room                
(Ironing out                
the loose leaf                
Details-                
Corners                
Unpacked    
Unfurled    
Undone)                
Mostly                    
After hours                    
In the                    
60’s-70s                    
It was                    
The Vietnam War                    
Then US Imperialism                    
Now globalization              
(This planet is being              
Granted a dispensation;              
Suffered for so long)              
Being protested                    
Under the name                    
Of "Mojo’s Pen"                    
An open mic                    
Group                    
In the 90’s                    
A state away                    
Somewhere                    
With participants                    
All manning                    
Their stations  
(From here to DC)                    
And the powers                    
That be                    
Scrounging                  
Around                    
For dissident                    
Activity                    
And well                    
“Each                    
Generation                    
Finds                    
Themselves                  
Being                  
Tried                    
By the times                    
That they’re                    
Living                    
Through.”                    
           
(Cointelpro and Weather Underground-this will probably be the last of its kind; 2 on the map for you.)
