Occupy the narrative

Possess it

Caress it

In discourse, impress it

In debate, distress it

In critique, contest it

If abandoned, own it

If reigning, dethrone it

If blunted, then hone it

Occupy the narrative

Occupy the narrative

Live it

Give it

In the streets, shout it

In the houses, Talk about it

In the closet, then out it

If slanted, then straighten it

If murky, enlighten it

If slackened, then tighten it

Occupy the narrative

Occupy the narrative

Sing it

Swing it

In water colors, paint it

In the pulpit, ordain it

In the classroom, explain it

If imprisoned, release it

If deficient, increase it

If creaky, then grease it

Occupy the narrative

See it, free it, decree it

Then be it, be it, be it,

Occupy the narrative.
