You can not silence me
This poem was written to include three or more words of the seven out of favor words from use at the CDC as a part of a flood of art and language and truth, in hard copy and solidarity.
In our world where the vulnerable suffer
and entitlement amasses to a proud few,
evidence and science-based approaches are insufficient
when alternative reality is deemed true.
We know that the key to change is our diversity
despite the perversity of the persistent right crew.
Our collective consciousness voiced
is our only choice
to unravel and recreate new
policy by the people and for the people
who look like me and you.
