If told to cast the first stone
do you think that I’d obey?
Scar another person
just to please the crowd’s melee?
Those who dress in daily judgement
long in tongue, they criticize
and peel the souls of others,
while cloaked in self-disguise.
Is there any single person
who has never romped astray?
No, I did not think so.
And no, I won’t obey.
A creek with flowing water,
a place to sit beneath the Oaks
A better use of stones.

They showed from every corner
From sea to shining sea
And set their sights to ameliorate
The key of democracy.
And, across the globe they crowded
Lifting wings of strength, declared
the rights of all humanity
Shall no longer be impaired.
Yes, on that day, they gathered
Determined, forged ahead
awareness in a tapestry,
made from four million thread.
