For those at the WTO protest and the coming DNC battle

by RONAN Monday, Aug. 14, 2000 at 8:25 AM
xpz@att.net P.O. Box 99050, stockton CA, 95209

This is our time to change the world... and I can think of no better philosophy than to live your life in the way you wish this world to be, not accepting anything less than ultimate freedom for yourselves and your Brothers and Sisters...

40,000 minds enflamed,

with fists upraised for battle,

the children of a coming God,

descended on Seattle,

The common bond between them,

was love for brotherhood,

it extended across the planet,

where poor and vagrant stood,

Their Will could not be defeated,

by centurion clubs and guns,

there unity was their victory,

before the day begun,

Those in power thought,

Thier spirit would not stand,

But a pillar can't be broken,

which extoles a love for man,

America's delusion broke,

On an unassuming day,

The people had a Voice,

Which cried for change of ways,

Men and Women chanted,

That money wasn't king,

Arms linked Passions Promise,

and made the world to sing,

The Time had come at last,

Though it fostered many years,

A love for humankind,

that brought my soul to tears,

We are sick of all the Greed,

We don't believe the lies,

Thrust upon the world,

By Corruptions Compromise,

Some Succumed to Violence,

A peak at things to come,

For those who fail to realize,

That the World is One,

If we don't build this together,

Its walls will never stand,

True Freedom will only come,

By helping fellow man,

We blossomed on Seattle,

We shook the Power base,

The Armoured thugs couldn't stop us,

with pepper spray and mace,

They only showed their weakness,

like tyrants have before,

Right before their downfall,

In many tales of yore,

For Humanities cause had spoken,

To change the Status Quo,

Our dream cannot be broken,

By freedoms deadly Foe,

The day has come for Brotherhood...

And Those that Saw it Understood...
