Justice and Freedom by Roxanne Thibault

blazing
.
Justice And Freedom
.
You have hung my brothers,
.
And raped my sisters,
.
In broken dreams I cry for them,
.
Grinning devil looking on,
.
Sharpens tooth and claw upon the innocent,
.
Blazing eyes of fire turn to ash,
.
The bodies of the proud,
.
The brave,
.
Our pleading quenching your thirst,
.
Oh devil,
.
But a day will come,
.
When brave and proud,
.
And those who hunger for justice and freedom,
.
Will rain upon you,
.
A fierce storm,
.
In which our blood and tears,
.
Will drown the fire of your hate.
