PERSISTERS

By Toni Kief

 

No longer the spectator

Nodding on the side

Silently angered

Fueled by a drive

 

Battle for rights

Hand to your vest

Black marker prepared

Draw signs of protest

 

Sensible shoes and cozy hat

Confident of age old demand

Ready to walk, aching to run

We gather to make a stand

 

Demands expose personal grief

Sisters and Misters temper a rage

Messages of love and promise of peace

We each take the stage

 

Passion in the parking lot

Marching in the street

Freedom’s messengers

In a unified beat.
