Never Let It Be Said

Hegemony

to those members
of the hegemony
who say, portentously,

Never Let It Be Said!

I am no Judas

I agree instead
with a silent majority
of farted nonsense
masquerading as
words of deeper
meaning

I am not afraid
to voice belief nor
will I stay silent to
keep the peace
uneasily

but hear this,
you will not make
me
into one
of you
