dawn's early light

o say, can you see the walls rising to isolate us?

by the light of missiles and violence. the problems will turn to ash, ash, ash.

poisoning ash, killing our earth.

what so proudly we hailed as a great change for America.

at the women's march, the march for science, and dozens of other marches,

whose broad steps and loud voices,

thru' the digital screen and the occasional radio,

were so gallantly fighting.

and the enemies' red light keeps glaring and our bombs of peace

just

      keep

               falling,

Gave proof through the night that our flag is still worth fighting for.

freedom is still worth fighting for.

o say, does our mighty union of states still need work?

of course.

but this nation of hope remains to be

the land of the free and the home of the brave!
