[From Mike Bee]
There are various ways people can be awakened.
Some do it out of themselves.
Some resist and then it happens anyway.
Some are so badly conditioned that they will never ever change.
The best way to wake someone
is to oppress them terribly.
If they are not cowed into submission from this,
they will start to fight back.
The people of Melbourne have had enough.
They were trusting at first.
Then they saw that you can’t make deals with the devil.
You think you can get away with a couple of jabs?
The devil always changes the terms.
If you do what he wants, it will never end.
Fear gets you nowhere. Submission gets you nowhere.
Awakening comes when you finally see
how the only answer is to stand up against oppression.
