Introducing William Skink’s Backyard Megaphone Monologue Series?

by Travis Mateer

While I wait for Emily Brock’s THE LONGEST TABLE programming to begin its civil discourse crusade with homeless people on the courthouse lawn, I’m seriously considering launching a similar effort, except I’m not interested in a two-way dialogue, hence the MONOLOGUE in the name of my educational series.

What I’m envisioning is a thirty minute educational session with my amplified free-speech maker at locations of my choosing, or at the suggestion of like-minded people eager to remind the budding authoritarians that we still have Constitutionally protected rights to things like free speech.

But just announcing the locations of my BMM series wouldn’t be much fun, and I think fun is going to be an important factor in maintaining morale in the weeks and months to come.

So instead being explicit, I’ll be poetic, and write some lines of poetry to hint at where my BMM educational opportunity will be popping up next.

Here’s today’s if I decide to go through with it.

once my work made them smile
open hands and money piles
now they cringe when I poem
for the nasty I can show 'em

  1. I used my free speech rights and a citizen filmed me, then proceeded to chastise me on a number of fronts about the content I was amplifying. He told me to say hi to Roy McKenzie (of Missoula County Tyranny) and when I asked him his name, he just flipped me off, so now I’m curious who this coward is. I guess I’ll have to wait for the video to drop.
