Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class

by Alexander Ryan

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
do not forget your Self,
You, who are Working for the Faceless,
are not without Face.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
do not forget that you are beyond measure,
You, who are both Rich and Poor,
are subject to Change.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
do not forget your Voice,
You, who destroy Walls and shape Worlds,
are the echo of past generations.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
do not rest on your laurels,
You, who face The Great Nothing,
are called upon to build an Ark.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
do not forget your Spirit,
You, who are of the bourgeoisie,
are more than a Mind+Body commodity.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
do not forget your Connection,
You, who are wired into the Matrix,
are the writers of Source Code.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
do not forget your Greatness,
You, who are possessed by Power,
are more Powerful than you think.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
do not rest in restlessness,
You, whose genius lies in constraint,
are called on a voyage of discovery.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
remember what you have forgotten,
You, who are Living The Dream,
must wake up.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
remember The Way,
You, who worship Progress,
must do Nothing.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
remember The Great Movement,
You, who are no longer limber,
must Dance, Dance, Dance.

Oh Great and Powerful Middle Class,
remember The Music,
You, who have grown cynical,
must listen and hear anew!

Perhaps the greatest gift that we can give to each other is a greater understanding of ourselves.
