Another great poem by Pat… The only thing I would change is the first line: ‘Let’s hereby give ourselves permission…’
I hereby give you permission
to be an angelic trouble-maker.
Feel free to disagree or to act
against established norms you
know to be wrong. Do not participate
in corrupt systems. Do not buy
from companies who do harm. Speak
out, speak up, be loud and clear.
Now is not the time for “nice.”
Be an angelic trouble-maker or
remain forever in your shackles
of complacency. We are governed
by the wicked ones only because
we allow ourselves to be. “Just
say ‘NO!’ is a slogan that still works.
