THE PEOPLE WANT TO RISE




It's just another day
sometimes you feel so sad
sings Paul McCartney

living, breathing
heart still beating
still feeling the outrage
it's just another day
it's just another day

The job of an organizer
is to get things popping up
in many places
create buzz
gets more folks thinking
and talking
standing up on their feet again
feeling human
and for once not just an agent
of the corporate machine
a peg in the board

It's actually fun to see the pot
stirred
in a positive way
that touches the mind, heart
and emotion

Now and then you stumble
onto a winning card
the people want to rise
the oven has been warmed
time for the baking
