A celebration underway
Yet the slaying seems here to stay
How are we to live
With those who die in peril ?
How are we to bring life into this world
Hate and Ignorance abound
Waiting for that sound
And feeling of hope
When she works till late
Bringing home that plate
Doesn't have to worry
About getting home safe
Does it make you tough to shoot for blood?
Would it make you tough to concede with love?
That gun doesn't make you a man
It makes you a coward where you stand
Pick up a torch and light your struggle
Put down your anger it's a lonely muzzle
