The Revolution Will Indeed Be Televised

I sit in a hotel, drinking too much shochu and listening to/reading Gil Scot-Heron

I am a white cis male, with my own issues, but I rethink the issues and pass on my thoughts
You will not only stay home

You will be required to

And you will do it

You’ll plug in, tune in, cop out

You’ll skip out for beer during commercials

Because the revolution will be televised

Only you will be watching

It will be brought to you

With commercial interruptions

It will be filled with pictures of Nixon

In stereo-sound, Hi-Def, virtual reality

Reality

Telling you how he’ll steal your heart

Soul, pancreas, and kidney

And they’ll love him for it

The revolution will be reported to you

By the Pew Trust, and New York Times, and Washington Post

Only who cares when Facebook

And Twitter replace Walter Cronkite with Rush Limbaugh

The revolution will not give you sex appeal

It will not make you look thinner

Because the revolution will be televised

But no one will watch
