The Revolution Will Be Organised

This came into my inbox from a friend... You will not be able to stay home brother, You will not be able to login, sit down and doze off, You will not be able to lose yourself in emailed exchanges, Sending messages for their own sake, Because the revolution will be organised

The revolution will be organised The revolution will not be brought to you in multi-part mime format In four parts with attachments The revolution will not send you minutes of meetings you did not attend And documents you have no intention of ever reading Because the revolution knows you have better things to do The revolution will be organised

The revolution will not be brought to you by the alt.goldfish.preservation discussion groups email digest and will not require You to fill in a read receipt The revolution will not CC your boss The revolution will not CC your friends The revolution will not waste your time with unnecessary email Because the revolution will be organised

There will be no need to repeat in emails Things agreed in conversations There will be no need to repeat in emails things agreed in conversations F.Y.I. There will be no need to reply to emails just Because someone sent them F.Y.I. There will be no need to phrase your emails Using language straight from the gutter or to Defend your opinion using a selection of flames and curses you have been saving For just the proper occasion Because the revolution will be polite

It will be OK to get up from your desk And walk the fifteen meters to your co-worker in order To arrange the meeting you are going to have in ten minutes time The telephone you have been given will not be left to recharge While downloading a new ring tone by Eminem, Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue or the Prodigy Because you will be using it

The Revolution does not need to send everyone a message About its opinion of snack machines, the temperature in the office or the next election You will not have to worry or panic about messages labelled Important or urgent, unless they really are The revolution will not write without punctuation The revolution will not feel the need to connect your spelling mistakes

The revolution will be organised, it will be organised The revolution will not be virtual brothers; The revolution will be live Apologies to Gil Scott Heron.
