Artist vs Activist

Let artists make art
Leave activism to those who aren’t afraid to be ugly
The truth isn’t always beautiful
Loving doesn’t make you happy
These are the tales that spirits like those of poets can cling to
Let artists find beauty
Let them sing and dance and entertain while we change the world
Activism needs more ugly than poets allow themselves.

Leave activism to those who aren’t still desperately hoping for fans to like them
