Outrage to Outrage

by Chris Sorrenti

Outrage to outrage
Mind-quake to mind-quake
Play the game of mental blitzkrieg
On the map of relationship
“You’re really too much”
That’s what they’ll say
When you’ve put them in their pigeon-holes
Just turn and walk away
Without saying a word
Disappear into an ocean of silence

Outrage to outrage
Mind-quake to mind-quake
Every day you live
Is an insult to the god of chaos
Spread your love around
It’ll make him very angry – too bad!
And though you sometimes still go the wrong way
It’s never too late to change direction

Outrage to outrage
Mind-quake to mind-quake
Don’t be afraid to be different
Burn that clone membership card
Jump off the wall
Leave your roots behind
And give a great big smile
While you’re doing it
You don’t gain anything
If you don’t risk the adventure
Be passive-aggressive for a change

Outrage to outrage
Mind-quake to mind-quake
Tongue in cheek your avant-garde
Launch a campaign of metaphoric kisses
Reinforce your handshake
Till you glow in the dark like a firefly
And looking behind
You might just find
An army of fireflies following you
