A caucus of never natives

The people
Who are proud to be unconnected
Whose opinion is unsought

The plural breeds
Without equities or equality
Who stand in the road
For rights
and liberties
Against fists of fascist fodder

The unconnected
Unwittingly fearless
Without need to belong
We bring new seeds in our hair
From elsewhere

We shed kernels on new ground
To form foreign roots

Growing into bright wild hues
This is the chorus of free will

Each one separately associated
By six or more degrees
To a universe of everyone

We need not be naively native
Nor national

No need to ask what we can do for country
Or surmise what country has done for none

We are
A caucus of never natives
