SMALL TOWN

When you do not stand up
when government and power
retaliate to shut you up,
When you cower under cover,
never speaking up,
You become the attacker,
You give government power
to attack another and another.
You are attacked because
the person before you cowered.
The next is attacked because of you.
So on your feet!
Do not whisper,
do not hide pretending
you do not see,
Speak out, loud, here, now,
Like you live in America,
before it’s gone.
