Make Anti-Fascism Great Again

We will be great again,
the streets echo back.
Hillsides ring with the songs

heard in thirty six,
Voices of eighty years
carried through the ether.

Darkness falls over
the forgotten, dispossessed,
damned, and unloved.

Now fists are raised and
followed by cracks, then
falling bodies that break;

Now the tears burst with
open screaming, and closing
hearts and homes and hope;

Now the fires rush through
from house to house and
church to mosque to temple;

Now pale figures emerge
from the night that surrounds
the message that they howl;

Now the fighting starts
again against black shirts
and boots that push

open terror and burnt ground.



So, what do you think?
