The Poetry of Occupy Wall Street



Welcome
We are
An occupation
On colonized land
We are poor
We are rich
We are hungry
We are well-fed
We are women
We are men
We are all genders
We are queer
We are ideologies
We are no ideology
We are religious
We are non-religious
We are non-violent
We are people
Standing in solidarity
Against oppression
This is a revolution
Worldwide

Anonymous poetry found on Broadway near Zuccotti Park. Today, Occupy Wall Street goes global.
