Poems of a Young Man: “A Rebel Operator on Pirate Airwaves”

.

Signifying less than nothing,

the coded messages came across

LOUD and CLEAR.

No one doubted

they were a ghost in the machine.

It was a well-known SNAFU.

Gibberish. Horseshit.

But no one questioned.

No one spoke.

Orders were orders,

with procedures to follow…

 

Meanwhile,

somewhere in a secret underground bunker,

an Operator is putting the World

on HOLD,

by taking time out to disobey.

Screw the playlist!

I play what I like.

I am proud to be that rebel Operator

signifying everything

LOUD

TRUE

and

CLEAR.
