Conspicuous Dissent

vietnam

Revolution is here

Chosen a side

Overcoming all fear

Our people rise

 

Impeach the clown

Order of the day

Tear fascism down

A democratic way

 

By force a king

Forefathers protest

History is calling

The national test

 

Truth in principle

A common humanity

Justice for all

Avoiding calamity

 

Facing tyranny’s fist

Most noble rebellion

Together we resist

Until victory won

 

Disobey unjust law

Follow human spirit

Tearing down walls

Love freedom’s gift

 

Patriotism in treason

Loyal are sheep

Stand for reason

Their authority weak

 

Land of the free

Home of the brave

The fighter in me

Loyal to the grave

 

Our cause American

Embracing origin

Old national plan

To rise again

 

One of many

No color or creed

The land of plenty

Leaves us in need

 

Leadership diminished

Apathy must end

Acquiescence finished

We won’t bend

 

From dream awoken

Lost all illusion

Faith not broken

Answering confusion

 

Firm and resolute

Passions ignited

Minds renewed

We remain united
