Vexed Vindication

Is being so stubborn you cause a stalemate a quality that we should admire as great?

Is this what you want?

No compromise, not

A chance you’ll not flaunt

Your fist, act all hot …

Is this what you want?

Self-righteous action

For self-satisfaction

Which stunts real action

Fluffing a fumed fraction…

Is this what you want?

Righteous indignation

Spread through the nation,

Could cause revelation,

Or annihilation

Of vindication …

Is this what you want?
