Today we hoist the black flag of anarchy… and plot illicit acts.
For the spirit of sedition steals over us. And passion overmasters our typical Olympian serenity.
We may be declared infamous and set down as an insurrectionist. We may be sent to the gallows.
Yet the time for meek submission is gone. And the time for bald defiance is here.
Do we break heads? Do we holler against the police?
Do we incite our fellow Americans to thieving, to arson, to bedlam?
