37

because the boys playing football eat out my heart
that is why i protest
because every policeman like a star i hollywood detests me
that is why i protest

because the little girl on the fourth story falls like a bomb
that is why i protest
because the grocer is full of knives and i am almost dead
that is why i protest

because we are so in love and yet are dying
protest protest
because we are people and do what people do
protest
