Status Quo

Status Quo

A Poem by Karen Redburn
"

More ramblings, thanks for comments or suggestions.

"

I am not the enemy, he says

The words bounce off blank stares

Shouting NEXT moving past it

Unwilling to hear this idea

Or to struggle with its possibilites

An enemy is easier to live with

Than a person opposed to status quo

You are very welcome. My pleasure.

After much damage and even, lives lost, the Establishment eventually--inevitably--presents that change to the world as its own innovation.
