Mole Brigade: for the outcasts

Those who have been sent to the shadows
who exist unseen yet reviled:
retreat beneath the ground

Move under their world
with stealth and secrecy.
Take your sustenance

Grasp it by the roots,
in the darkness
from which it grows.

Create paths through
the underworld;
build caverns underground.

When it is time to rise,
push mountains
through the soil –

Shake the surface
Destabilize their world
Plant gardens in the freshly churned earth.

  1. Love this 🙂 This sounds very much like my Annuvian (referring to the Brythonic underworld Annwn) approach to resistance having ended up burnt out and helpess attempting to confront the government and capitalist powers directly.

      Thank you Lorna! 🙂 I can relate to burnt out and helpless. Direct confrontation is a necessary tactic of resistance, but it is not the only tactic. I am for the underworld approach (which is not surprising considering my relationship with underworld deities). These beings have some good lessons for us.
