go to the window…

 

if our leaders
will not defend us
then
we
must rise up
if our laws
are
a mere mockery
then
we
must rise up
if our children
are
murdered at school
then
we
must rise up
if a fool’s lies
are
national policies
then
we
must
rise up
we
must rise up
seize freedom’s sword
and
slay
hades’ beast

 


in answer to pat…

 

it’s a mere ember
beneath despair’s cold ashes
but freedom shall reign
bursting into red-hot flames
igniting liberty’s torch
