Please Resist Me

Poems by Luka Lesson

'Please Resist Me', written and performed by Luka Lesson. Please resist me Colonise me, compromise me, conflict me Please don't risk me If you see me at the airport Please come and frisk me Please resist me Colonise me, compromise me and conflict me Please don't risk me Please call me stupid Because your resistance Brings my evolution Please resist me Call me a wog It’s brought us so close together I could call me a squad Please resist me Lock me in solitary confinement I'll close my eyes and admire the quality of the silence I'll write rhymes in my mind honestly and define them Solidly redefine and memorise them Until like a diamond When I come out I’ll be better than when I arrived in Please resist me, Keep me under the thumb Keep me down-trodden keep me under the gun Keep me working harder under thunder and sun Son - haven't you heard? I'm becoming a gun Please resist me Because resistance brings evolution And you've resisted me consistently I thank you for your contribution I'm a happy man Your stupidity has made me strong I've developed wings A thick skin and this here opposable thumb It holds my pen which loads my explodable tongue So without loading a gun I'm killing high quotas of unemotional... punks Sorry You also taught me to speak French I learnt it when you kept keeping me at arms-length And then I learnt Italian just to expand my head And Greek to learn from where my ancestors had fled And then I learnt some Yanyuwa Just to show the people of this land respect You see It's been your example that has led me to leave you for dead So don't trust me I'm risky Insurmountable unaccountable I'm an undeniable unreliable maniacal liability I fire soliloquies and my liturgies literally leave a literary litany You see When I was little They told me I was: Illegitimate, illiterate and limited Little did they know that in a minute I'd be killing it I'm vivid like in cinemas So my synonym is vividness I stick it like I'm cinnamon And kill it like a militant I live it like a citizen - you live a life like imprisonment Besides Indigenous, immigrant might be the most legitimate of citizen So it’s better to live a life like us... Isn't it?
