It made the most unusual noise as it landed.
It came out of left field.
It bounced and jostled and discomfited.
It called for the letting go of preconceptions,
of prejudice and of predisposition to the conservative.
It shook up the aggressive,
and spoke to the transgressive.
It shied from being named as progressive,
and claimed to be a missive
from a dissident thinker,
a thinker who stood out from the crowd,
a tall poppy who stuck her neck out,
who challenged the popular, and the cliché,
who went against the flow of crowd speak,
who had an unusual world view,
who asked unusual questions,
and made unusual commentary.
And the unusual noise it made as it landed,
stunned the world into,
