Power To The People - Poem by Brooks Reitz

Power to the people,
stomp your feet,
Hold up your signs,
exercise freedom of speech,
take a chance,
beat the heat.
Let me see the fists
scream a little harder,
see that, women being arrested,
for speaking of something she believes?
guard her.
They think they're being hurt on their side,
take a look at ours,
we get shot in the head,
boy!! Believing in something you know is right,
is really,
awfully hard.
