The channel changes

Angry words devoid of meaning,
Without action, they ring hollow
To an audience of none.
Roused to join the righteous cause,
Unity in indignation.
Joined in feeling, not in reason,
Choirs shoved towards crescendo —
Let them curse us,
Let them yell.
Once the last cries fade,
Nothing but the channel changes.
As it’s ever been,
The world they fight
Remains the same.
