Dear Hannah: LEarning (Master Plan + Master Plan (REMIX 2))

November 04, 2019

Dear Hannah,

today may seem bleak
yesterday seemed bleaker

be slow to speak
check first the speaker

payback sounds chic
to forgive is "chic-er"

meek ain't weak
might is weaker

wrong is strong
love is stronger

war is long
peace lasts longer

stay the course
finish it well

what that resembles
time will tell

seek small solutions
rinse and repeat

don't think with your eyes
don't vote with your tweet

revolutions aren't televised
nor broadcast online

instead they occur
in both heart and spine

of maybe two or three
who touch and agree

then hatch up a plan
they can work faithfully

with no fanfare nor buzz
just concrete small steps

well-disguised as work
done in efficient reps

... now, let's run that back ...

waitin'
waitin' for the world to change
how
how can we rearrange

how it is
into
how it's supposed to be

hopefully
somebody
will notice we
need to see

that nobody
can globally
confine the free
who pay the fee

to organize
locally
powerfully
seems to me

when two or three
touch and agree
prayerfully
on bended knee

totally
joyfully
vocally
demons flee

victory
notably
our history's
no mystery

Thinkin
Thinkin of a master plan
Nothin' but a pen
inside my hand

so I ...
commence this verse
to break the curse
of bad and worse

thoughts perverse
that coerce
us to disburse
move in reverse

let's immerse
not disperse
then converse
ideas diverse

schoolwork
homework
bookwork
patchwork

legwork
footwork
roadwork
fieldwork

casework
housework
clockwork
network

gamework
framework
teamwork
dreamwork

I work
You work
They work
We work.

This race will be won by those who endure the trenches.

So join me in the trenches, aiiight?

Selah.

Love,

Daddy
