The Only Label


My body's not a billboard. I will wear
no logos, brands, or corporate IDs.
This is the only label I will bear.

I'm owned by no-one's party policies
or economic interests. I'll display
no logos, brands, or corporate IDs

upon this flesh. I was not made to say
these empty things about what you should buy
for economic interest. I'll display

this label only: Owned by the Most High,
concern myself with Love's concerns, and not
these empty things. About what you should buy,

I'm standing silent ever since I got
this badge with honor and humility,
concerned myself with Love. For I am not

an item that's for sale: I am free.
My body's not a billboard. I will wear
this badge with honor and humility.
This is the only label I will bear.
