the fourth estate

the new fourth estate
champion of words
speaking with

intense eloquence
beaten down by the
new American fascism

wired to the will
of the people
even to those

who believe the
lies of the fascists
are for them

yet we are the
gravel under
the jackboots

we are the new
fourth estate
the new Gutenberg

speak the truth
with liquid black ink
dancing on the wires

I am the voice
of freedom, free
from all but the truth

we wield this weapon
crackling on the wires
to the revolution

--Thomas R. Thomas
