We all have a target on our backs. (For JoePockets)


This isn’t about
Black or white
Stripes or polka dots

We all have a lot of love
Some of us need to work on our rage
Constant pushing only backs you into a corner

I’m Spartacus
Been a squeaky wheel for as long as I can remember
Now I’m thinking about JoePockets and the dear friends they’ve become through the pandemic

He’s Spartacus
Doesn’t know the word surrender because all that buys you is more self-loathing
It’s a treacherous climb up the mountain pass, but if you don’t try you’ll never advance

If your spirit is breaking you’re not alone
2020 was a killer and 2021 isn’t shaping up to be much better
If we don’t start pushing back the Republicans and their deadly politics will wipe out anything resembling free speech

Our humanity is on the line
We need to stop being sheep
Realize how easily we’re being culled
