Alerta! Alerta! Antifascista! - Poem by Ethan Connolly

As I approach the protest
I can hear the lines
Coming from my side
Alerta! Alerta! Antifascista!
Follow your leader! Shoot yourself like Adolf Hitler!
I see the riot police
In front of me
I know the enemy hides behind them
White supremacist bullshit
spilling from their mouth
I put on my mask
I put my hood up
As time goes on
Things get hostile
Fireworks and bottles
Rain down upon us
We don't back down
We catch the bottles
Throw them back
A firework from their side
Hits a police officer
That's when they panic
Pushing the far right away
Back to the pub's
That they crawled out from
Antifascists are dispersed
Back to our bus we go
Two captured flags
In our possession
And a bag
Its contents a mystery
We check the bag
Something disturbing
Condoms, cable-ties and sleeping pills?
Sounds like a date rape kit
You want to know something disturbing?
This poem
Is a completely true experiance
I've been through
