POEM: “We are!”

“We are the 99%”
A declaration of a tiny few, 100 or 1,000 or 10,000
In this park or on that street corner,
under baton blows, or faces painted with capsicum sting,
or laughing or shouting in discussions.
Just a few “we”.

A creative “we”
Declaring is beginning
A “we” on the offensive demanding to exist
Constituting itself in activity
Straining to embrace the whole in its journey
“We are the 99%!” searches for its maps.
