Carl Rakosi

To the Non-Political Citizen

You choose your words too carefully.
Are you afraid of being called agitator?

Every man is entitled to his anger.
It's guaranteed in the Constitution.
Every man is also entitled
to his own opinion and his own death,
his own malice and his own villainy.
But you spend too much time goosing.

--Carl Rakosi

 fr. Amulet, 1967
