We Riot

A child’s life is what it took

for masses to stand up

A child’s life it took

for all the hurt to surface

for years we’ve stood still

hoped for the better

knowing it will get worse

Stand up fellow citizens

it is us who bare the burden of incompetence

it is us who’ve waited for too long

Child’s life is what it took

We can’t let them go on

the dwellers in our lives

conductors, adjudicators

creators of our future they say.

That future is not bright

Blood and bodies everywhere

A child’s life is what it took

So we riot

to chase the hurt away
