The Common Room

Rate: 2 Flag

Where’s the common room

amidst voice of doom

to plan victory,

to meet again?


In the common room

I can’t get there too soon

too soon to say

hello

I’m here

in the common room


and you’d be there too

and we’d see each other there

again & again

& we’d never lose

this common room

to any corporate goon

who’d brand our skin

and wouldn’t let us back in

for saying “no more!”

THANKS FOR FINDING ME SO I COULD FIND YOU AND THIS LOVELY POEM.
When you find that common room, tell me. I'll meet you there. By the way, I love the punk nuns!
Thanks. Just to clarify, they're not punk nuns, they're Iranian teens. It's a still from the "Persepolis" movie, that was made fromthe comic book novel, about author Marjane Satrapi's growing up in Iran during the 1980 revolution. The animated feature was actually done in cell animation, adding to the impressiveness of the project. Later, 14 yr old Marjane gets caught being punk by the "Keepers of the Revolution", women guards who make sure women are covered up on the street w/no western influences displayed.
