State Of The Union (In Closing) - Poem by Eric Cockrell

we, the working people
of America, demand our dignity!
we demand equality, and fairness!

we are all immigrants here!
yet no human being is illegal.
we demand the right to work,
and to educate our children.
we demand shelter, and healthcare!

we are a hard working, hard fighting
people... we demand a
hard working, hard fighting President!

we know that you are limited
by the hand of the controlling elite,
at the mercy of the corporate machine.
dont be just a figurehead.
your choice!

freedom is a work in progress.
the real revolution is in
the human heart, in the mind.
we are ready for change,
and willing to act.
be ready, and willing!

there are no small people,
we are all people.
we will not be owned!

we cannot go back to the
bigoted, ignorant ways of the past.
you are our best option,
be the man!

most of all, we demand the action
that follows words well spoken.
be the action!
