Democracy Spring

Gathered by the hundreds
to make change happen

Sanctifying the revolution
and revolving what is sanctified

Dancing on the edge
of a serrated knife

Only to make you see
that things aren’t all right

Facing jail time and adversity
and still coming together

Sweat, blood, and tears
shed to make a better tomorrow

Will you see them?
Or will you cower in indifference

Like so many before you?
