Get Rid Of The Advertisements

What Are We Protesting For ?
 


a call to the west
we must clearly confess
all of life is a big test
through pillars of sought after dignity
others will just do what they please
some getting knocked to their knees
what are we protesting for ?
with billboards of promise offering so much more
yet we move to soon in our gloom
troubled hearts are so many
why do we even disagree
social media making history
where is our dignity
Trump has got something up his sleave
a moral chance at one willing to achieve
we want a blast from the past
to tell us of our future

barbed wire fences
one hand to hold a heart will mend
when will we ever understand
seeking pillars of truth
fighting in the street with a busted tooth
we are all getting caught up in the mix
everyone is looking for their next quick fix
what are we protesting for ?
many having claim it being so very 1964
