Citizens of our country
Are being  fired upon
Not by foreign enemies
By Federal Agents, here at home.

Think that rubber bullets
Can’t do you any harm?
The use of those projectiles
Is cause to be alarmed.

Peaceful, lawful protesters
Walking in the street
Encountering Storm Troopers
Firing bullets at their feet.

Billy clubs and flash bombs
An illegal use of force
Being used to disperse the crowds
While showing no remorse.

In the midst of a pandemic
With the virus taking lives
We are trying to protect ourselves
While fighting for our rights.

We do not want a dictatorship
What is going on?
This attack from our government
Must stop….it is so wrong.
