Some who fight...(entry for Rhensis' Booksie Contest of a Lifetime, Prompt #1)

Poetry By: Demyx306

This is for Rhensis' first prompt on the Booksie Contest of a Lifetime.

Although the prompt is based on the song Champion, by chipmunk, I did it specifically on the lyric "Some people have to fight."

There are some people who have to fight.

It's not for glory, nor for might.

Do you understand what I am saying?

Fear won't come and corrupt their path.

Nor the thoughts of the aftermath.

I hope you know that none of them are playing.

And if you see

a brand new leap for democracy,

I hope you defend

the rights our leaders may try to bend.

So, if you find

Otpor lives in many kinds

of citizens who know

it's time to arm, it's time to go!

What do you think of our little plan?

Free liberty for every man?

"Pursuit" and "Happiness" are not the same.

Free life and love for one and all.

Peace will reign when justice falls.

It's time to end this mother-fucking game!

And if you see

a brand new leap for democracy,

I hope you defend

the rights our leaders may try to bend.

So, if you find

Otpor lives in many kinds

of citizens who know

it's time to arm, it's time to go!
