Favourite lines:

“we televise revolutions this is our own my comrades
we are the stars of our own show roll in credits my comrades
this is our own revolution lets become stars tonight ”

“everybody bring your god we have a god’s festival
you can call him iman, pope, bishop or pastor & father
for your god puts priority in his title than name
for his title rings bells his name sounds like my neighbours
what quality god can you serve who shares a name with a human
its a god with an ID & a passport to travel
a god without a scripture who lives to critique the existing
a god who fails to live up at the god’s festival “
