They Lied

They said we were safe. 

They lied.

We believed them.

They lied.

They promised equality

They lied

They hold positions of power.

They lied.

They cannot be removed

They lied

We protested

They lied.

We shouted

They lied

         They heard our anger

They hide

         They seek protection

Because they lied.

  1. True colors form their banner of deceit

    Damage done cannot be undone

    People of authentic valor rally

    Come together to render aid

    Organize to overcome

    Stay tuned.
