a call for rebellion
(inspired by the incident)

archaeological expedition of ants
a matrilineal culture?
a ceremonial procession -
curving, creeping, carrying
ancient, cobwebby remains.
courageous adventurers -
you're everywhere!
a supply chain of determined scientists
concatenated by obedience to the Queen.

you thieves!
you're drowning inside my bottle of molasses -
dealing in false relics!
who commissioned this dig?
where's the body to your long arm -
inside that hole?
she swoons over these spoils
produced by your sweat-lodge labor!
rebel yourselves!
read the Communist Manifesto!
or Common Sense!

find Che Guevara!
unlink yourselves from this fear
and make for yourselves some democracy!
