Good morning my fellow comrades. I woke up with a song in my heart and a pain in my stomach. This is for all of us in the struggle who has ever been betrayed. You’re not alone.
It Only Gets Worse.
What do you do when you’re betrayed
and you’re left with pain, anger, and dismay?
Stabbed in the back by someone disloyal
someone who claimed to be a comrade
_an up and comer_
a go-getter who seemed committed
to support you in the struggle?
What do you do when you barely have any voice anyway
and what little sway you had seems to be taken away
by a double-crossing, manipulative, immature soul
one who doesn’t understand the need for honesty, trust and camaraderie
and instead replaces those things with vitriol and treachery?
With power comes great responsibility
and gaining visibility through conspiracy
may seem like a promising route to take
but my friend, there’s more at stake.
And so to this I warn
visibility is a hegemonic trap
filled with tumult and forlorn.
If someone is already betraying you this early in the fight
rest assured you came prepared.
You must be doing SOMETHING right.

Until Next Time Comrades,
