Scott Olsen Speaks Again: the #Occupation Rejoices (a poem)

To Scott Olsen, Marine, 
Veteran of the Oakland Occupation

Standing straight, saluting, sometimes smiling  --  Spirit shining
Courage creating choice, choosing clarity, certain, calm 
Offers one opportunity, obvious over others:
To take the time to teach things thorough
To tell the teachers to teach the truth

O #OccupyOakland, obstinate, outspoken 
Learning, living, laughing, loving
Successes surely seem
Effective, even earned,
