She.

She didn’t throw herself from gorse under a horse.

She could not endorse her message without remorse.

She didn’t plot a way to close down a course.

She didn’t use an overly aggressive force.

She didn’t yell, “What do we want?”, down a megaphone.

She didn’t cry long hard and alone.

She didn’t stick herself in front of rush hour.

She didn’t throw eggs, milk, or flour.

She didn’t write a play and sign up a star.

She didn’t brandish a message along the side of her.

She didn’t lecture or pity the fools.

She didn’t etch out a story, hands filled with tools.

Nor did she shout out at all cost.

She didn’t argue until hope was lost.

She didn’t glue her hands to classic artwork.

She didn’t fight, resist, bite, spit or go berserk.

She didn’t cry behind a podium in front of an audience of the great and good.

She did talk sense and described all she could.

She even wrote it on her pencil tin.

She whispered her words amongst the great din.

And nothing happened.

Nothing ever could.

Status quo.

No changes.

No new beginning.

The same old.

Nothing.
