my tribesmen’s tale 4: with love from paris

Dedicated to the respected diaspora

we heard your story of revolution
pray tell it’s not some obliteration for damnation
liberty is a nightmare, a sub for chronic warfare
equality, a measurement for/between rich men’s safe boxes
fraternity, mere waves of defecation oscillating between hills and valley

in death we become one
and it doesn’t care about your unique stories
your revolution, your damnation
your liberty, your equality, your fraternity;
do give our best to burma

Text displayed on a placard announcing the sale of biens nationaux (1793). Soon after the (French) Revolution, the motto was sometime written as Liberty, Equality, Fraternity, or Death. The death part was later dropped for being too strongly associated with the Reign of Terror (5 September 1793 – 28 July 1794).
