Advice for life: Don't Die

Freedom. Liberty. Patriots. Loyalists. Revolution.
Surely not.
Why not?
We’ll find a compromise.
Nah, little Johnny here wants to fight a war.
Violence is never the answer.
This isn’t question/answer. It’s life/death.
It doesn’t have to be.
At least kill the royal brute.
Then who’ll govern us? That soldier outside the door?
No! I’m sure that Washington guy will do.
Washington. Ben Franklin. John Adams. King George.
Words. Names. Wars. Governments. Revolution.
Where am I?
The dinner table. 1775.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I've got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Nothing ends
Nothing ever ends

At first I saw this and was like, oh god another government conspiracy poem, but I read it anyway. I just wanted to let you know that I'm eating my words right now.
