Change

You came here before, as a youth, and learned about revolution. You absorbed the ideas here and formed your own about how things should be.

Then you went out in the world and you brought change.

Now, you’re in charge and you tell the people what to do. You have freed the people from their old chains and made new ones to bind them. Your ideas are hammered into stone and made into law.

You stand there at my door, with soldiers, and want my books and names of those I have taught.

But you won’t get any.

Everything changes.
