Treasure Island

(Jennings County, Indiana)

Rise Up


Rise UP
From the dirt and filth of the nations
Rise UP
From the wounds of war
Dance in their face
UP
Dance on their streets
Tear the shreds of their hands
From your vaginas
From your breasts
Rise UP
And say No More
Nay, scream No More
UP
Dance
Rise in the name of Women and Girls
Now!

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
