Performance Poet Dee Allen makes a timely return. The US Government, through the National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin, declares that we must be alert and vigilant to the movements and machinations of the domestic antigovernment terrorists. Dee Allen makes sure we pay attention to what they’re saying, what they have been saying, lest we be caught unawares.
“DUE TO THE ELECTION VICTORY OF OPPONENT JOE BIDEN, OUR PRESIDENT’S STAND-BY ORDER HAS BEEN RESCINDED. WE’RE ROLLING OUT.” Rolling out To save Western Civilisation— They love to blow On that dog whistle Rolling out To prevent White genocide— They obviously Don’t read statistics Rolling out For the Whites who built Western society alone— They've obviously Forsaken the slaves who raised wood, mortar & stone Rolling out To give multi-cultural populace Their own racial reckoning For the loss of a “fearless leader” Rolling out To keep America great— On the streets, like no other— Maybe Hitler’s Brownshirts* and Nazi skinhead gangs Rolling out With American flags in their horde— Proud to sow intimidation, reap domestic terror Quasi-military boys so proud to be so damn wrong— W: Thankstaking 2020 *Das Sturmabteilung [ SA - “Storm Unit” ].

For the first 100 days of the Biden administration, this website will feature a new poem of What’s Next!? These pieces can be calls to action, calls to attention, or calls to anger. They will light the way and guide the fight. They will get us moving and keep our momentum. They will be filled with hope, with anger, with sorrow. They will get us into good trouble and point out the trouble we need to stop. They will be polished gems, or rough-cut drafts of rage, or in-process pieces searching for peace. They may be haiku or tanka, limericks or lyrics, verses free or fettered.
