You will not be able to stay home.
You will not be able to plug in, turn on, and cop out.
You will not be able to skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be televised.
The revolution will not be brought to you by Wal-Mart
The revolution will not show you pictures of Obama
smiling next to Oprah and Bono on the White House lawn.
The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be brought to you by
Warner Brothers Productions and will not star
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie or Burt and Ernie.
The revolution will not give your mouth sex appeal
or make you look ten pounds thinner,
because the revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be manufactured in China and
assembled in Mexico.
The revolution will not be written by Lady Gaga or
performed after the seven o’clock news.
NBC will not be able to predict the winner at 8:32
or report from 29 districts because,
The revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not go better with Coke.
The revolution will not fight the germs that may cause bad breath.
The revolution will not put you in the driver’s seat.

HOWWWWWEVER.

The revolution will run on grease.
Fermentation will be embraced and
the revolution will involve 20 minutes of meditation at 6am five days a week,
allowing for a 2 hour lunch break.
The revolution will be communicated using non-violent language.
The revolution will be a marriage between chickens and compost,
feature the right balance of carbon and nitrogen,
and will be heated to 140 degrees to kill all bad bacteria.

The revolution will imitate our earth’s ecology with permanent agricultre and
serve beet raspberry pies as well as a blend of garlic scapes and farmers cheese.
The revolution will not tolerate oppression but encourage liberation.
It will not accept pickles smaller than THIS or bigger than THIS
The revolution will be as beautiful as Shemaya, have sizable teats, and go BAAAAAA
The revolution will be hand-weeded, stirrup hoed, and embrace pluralistic Jewish values.
Showering on occasion will be the norm and
we will jump in Lake Miriram and refresh ourseves with Mikvah each Friday.
The revolution will hang garlic from the rafters and embrace fat beets.

The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
will not be televised, will not be televised.
The revolution will be no re-run my friends;
The revolution will be grown from the soil by young Jewish farmers on bicycles.
But the revolution will have to wait because tonight those young Jewish farmers are resting for Shabbat.

-Ashley Seiver & Sam Plotkin, Summer 2011
