oppositional defiance


world pollution and
your personal health cares

corporate backers
russian hackers and
world wide security scares

all is well
not going to hell

if they say “yes”
then we just say “no”

if they say “stay”
then we just say “go”

if they seek the truth
then we create the truth

if they offer facts
then we deny them

for defiance is our strength
it will set us free
