the how come tribe

we are not rebels

with knee jerk reactions

to force against elders

inane insane authority

or contrarians

pitching in to push against

find fault in everything

taking opposite positions

just for the fun of that

nor reactionaries in revolt

fighting to hold the line

until that crumbles to dust

instead ours is of the way

of thoughtful thinking through

the try for understanding

we are the how come tribe

please tell me

the why what

how come you came to this

before you use force

to make me do your bidding
