Vendredi Noir


Ultra Violence

We took our vow of Silence.

Tinted our faces with the French flag,

didn’t wanna look bad.

I said we but don’t include me.

I’m not part of your hypocrisy.

Can’t just blame it on autocracy.

Protest, protest, attest.

Now just because some got shot, doesn’t mean we can’t shop

Forget them that were used as props

it was of course part of a ritual,

so they could implement the visual

of what was seen on screen, foreseen.

Take one for the Team

while they scream…

On the Real Black Friday.

As they call out for Marshall
