Subject: Rowdy Resistance

Our rowdy resistance is working

Our democracy's demise stalled by the passion of our people

Collective, concerted anger in the streets

And halls of raging repudiation

Our people push past the fear of fascism

Our lives lived in a degree of freedom til now

Will not easily be extinguished

In the sweet storm of civil rights

And the wretched, wasted wars we marched against

The workers freedoms we fought for

Some of us prepared for the defense of democracy

We are not soldiers just in the sun

But also in the madness of a midnight moon

We have plumbed the soul of struggle

And our own souls

We know what we were wrought to do.
