We Looked Away

“Postwar America fell heavily under the influence of an out-of-control and paranoid military-industrial-complex. The middle-class kids growing up in 60's rebelled and a revolutionary spirit took hold amongst them. Marx was for many a guiding inspiration for revolution. Their indignation was fanned by the oppression of minority races at home and the killing of foreigners half a world away at the hands of an imperialistic American military.”

Marx made us high
united yet less committed
except for getting high

Eventually we fearful
gave up 
"grew up"
followed the path  
of cookies that lead us
to what was expected
educations, professions, families, houses
military-industrial complex

Marx made us high
united yet less committed
We looked away
