Unfurled by Adam Levon Brown

Fighting for political and economic equality is hard

I’m facing federal incarceration for simply being a bard

I fear not the isolation or the metal bars

I fear that things will not change under the stars

 

I speak truth to power in hopes that things will change

The government wants to use my picture

in their firing range

Rebellion and civil disobedience are the tactics

for a better life

 

While I’m busy organizing protests,

they’re sharpening the knife

Violence is their only tool and it doesn’t work very well

All it does is put people through a government aided hell

 

We can overcome their ways if we utilize peace

in this venture I will never cease

They are only set up to deal with rage filled assault

They are paid off and set up,

make no mistake it isn’t their fault

 

Gandhi said “Be the change you want to see in the world”

 

Let us become revolutionaries;

Ships with our sails unfurled,

With our backs to the wind

we can withstand this political hurricane …

 

Non-violent protest is the tool, it is the authoritarian’s bane.
