There is no time for chit chat 

This or that.  

Discussion is just waiting for our repercussions  

Conversation will convert no one nowadays 

Denial will not defend the defenceless 

Battle cries don’t win battles 

Punchlines won’t punch Nazis  

Violence might be the answer, but neither are questions 

Doubt never reaches the devout 

Shouting shows only noise devoid of voice. 

Choices are made, turns are played 

Strike! what you abhor—or what are your fists clenched for? 

It’s time to take action! It’s time to act! 

It’s time to… to… to… 




What were we going to do then? Where? When? 

Let’s discuss this first. 

What’s the worst that could happen?
