Something about youth.


Sign a petition they all said
It'll fix everything
Sign a petition they all said
It'll help the injustice
What will you do when you sign your petitions
and all that's left is a searing hole
and papers on the White House desk,
smoking and black, straight down the drain
Sign a petition they all said
"It'll get nothing done."


The author's comments:

The influx of petition making inspired this piece. I wondered, and still wonder if many of the individuals signing a digital signature would go as far as to do the same action physically.
