"The Revolution Will Not Be Monetized"

You will not be posted up at the tilt, homie
You will not be able to log in, like it, then opt out
You will not be able to nod into a dab and dip
Dip out during pop up ads
Because The Revolution will not be monetized

The Revolution will not be monetized
The Revolution will not be bought out by Facebook in four part ads
That sell your personal data to Cambridge Analytics
The revolution will not show you GIFs of Trump
Tweeting obscenities and leading a charge
By Jeff Sessions, John Kelly, or Mike Pence to eat
Taco bowls liberated from Trump Tower Grill
The Revolution will not be monetized

The Revolution will not be brought to you by Netflix
And will not star Jennifer Lawrence or Liam Hemsworth
Or Sponge Bob and Randall
The Revolution will not get you more follows
The Revolution will not get rid of the haters
The Revolution will not be your perfect image-post filter
Because The Revolution will not be monetized, yawl

There will be no selfies of you and Lebron James
Brandishing trending ironic protest signs at Pershing Square
Or promoting parties to oppose pipelines on stolen land
Instagram will not livestream a winner at 4:15
Or feature stories from 29 verified influencers
The Revolution will not be monetized

There will be no iPhone X videos of one time shooting down brothas in the instant replay
There will be no Galaxy 9 videos of five-o shooting down brothas in the instant replay
There will be no memes of Shaun King being dragged on Twitter with multi-colored dreadlocks
There will be no flower crown selfie of Obama
Strolling through Chiraq in an Ian Mckay "Black Lives Matter" deep-V
He had been saving for the proper occasion

The Voice, The Bachelor, and The Kardashians will no longer be so damned relevant
And people will not care if Olivia finally gets down with Fitz on Scandal
Because Black People will be in the street
Rewriting this historical American Horror Story
The Revolution will not be monetized

There will be no viral reaction clips on Snapchat
And no GIFs of short-haired feminist Actionists
And Ivanka Trump blowing smoke the color of rich White women's suffering
The theme song will not be produced by Dr. Luke or Gaslamp Killer
Nor sung by Ed Sheeran, Post Malone, or Arctic Monkeys, or Kanye West
Because coonery sounds like a choice to me

The Revolution will not offer click bait to fake news about
White elephants, white lies, or White People
You will not have to worry about a lion in your wallet, a tiger in your cereal, or a bear in your laundry; oh my
The Revolution will not go better with Kombucha
The Revolution will not fight drowsiness to help you stay woke
The Revolution will be built for the Human Race

The Revolution will not be monetized
Will not be digitized
Will not be monopolized
Will not be search engine optimized
The Revolution will be no reshare, retweet, regram, or repeat, people

The Revolution will be LIVE
