What do you stand for? What do you fight for? While our children go to war for a freedom we already faught for died for, tried for, as you march in the night to keep guns that were alight in our schools, in our churches, but it's alright; we'll keep our secrets in our purses and our nations in our hearses for there will be no sound as those who were beated, cheated, and mistreated are put in the ground as blood fills our beats, our sheets, and streets because you made us pay when you took away our only way to protect our minds when we were labeled as pre-existing conditions in our systems by the physicians, Free healthcare? Please! You gave us this disease when you tore open our knees because we "wanted it," "taunted it," "flaunted it," till all we could was plea like the football player on his knee fighting to attain basic human rights promised by a flag that was still there through the night, the fight, the morning light, so that we ould vote for a man to start a war for a planet he does not care for yesterday, or today, so now there will be no tomorrow to tell us what you stand for, fight for. So what are you waiting for?
