Becoming Political

We are anarchists:
we all imagine.
But why not use that imagination?
It would save us all some trouble.

We are democrats:
we all care.
But we do not care too much.
For that can cause some trouble.

We are communists:
we work for each other.
But why not work by each other also?
It would save us all some trouble.

We are anarchists:
we give gifts.
But why not make life a gift?
It would save us all some trouble.

We are democrats:
we talk to each other.
But why not talk to each other more often?
It would save us all some trouble.

We are communists:
we do not threaten.
Only the scared are threatened.
If by ‘threatened’, you mean ‘scared’.

We are all already anarchists.
So why not become anarchist?

We are all already democrats.
So why not become democratic?

We are all already communists.
So why not become communist?
