On a treeless plain in North Dakota
rubber bullets are voting
for stasis

On a street yet to be named in any given city
police bullets are voting
for stasis

In any prison in any given state
forced labor is voting
for stasis

On the New York Stock Exchange
the currency is voting
for stasis

3.
Get out
and vote

It gives you
something to do

Gives you
a place to stand

Gives them
stasis
