The Lesson Learned

Sisters hear

Need you near

Brothers hear

Challenge fear

 

I am you

You are me

Together true

Ourselves free

 

Us they force

Pushing apart

Lies they resort

Stabbing our hearts

 

Some run left

Others run right

Center the rest

Oligarchs in flight

 

Democracy’s death

Fascist infection

With bated breath

Seek resurrection

 

Foul monarchy

Foolish tin crown

Defeat autocracy

Our unity found

 

Lesson in apathy

Sad twist of fate

Popular lethargy

Sanctioned hate

 

Sleepers awake

Break the fall

Reverse mistake

Save us all
