    Revolutions are never televised as they happen
    Propaganda is televised as revolution happens
    Revolutions are televised only on the history channel
    And history is his story
    He is he who has control
    Revolution being linear in nature is never complete
    If you rest on the revolution before the revolution is complete
    The revolution will rest on you
    Sometimes the revolution must be internalized
    Driving the revolution into the most
    Complicated battlefield there is
    Where the comfort of the now
    Is challenged by the
    Illegitimacy of the Should be
    Upsetting the balance of the has/have beenz
    Threatening to displace the Almost
    From their self perceived position of juxed appeased
    Ripping the line of equality
    From where your conscious knows it should be
    As you pretend not to see what is happening to me

    When your children see what you refused to see
    What will you say
    How will you explain where your morals lay

    Will their revolution be televised?…..
    And will you see it then??????

    A Good Question?

    Will it? Not if it needs advertsing--not much money in revolution, but if we can find an advertiser, it could be a sell out and the pun is intended--Amun-Ra

    Yes we often don't believe what's in front of us til it's deemed as "news". Liked the way this message was dropped.
