WINTER 2018-2019


Donald Allen


I think I'll march in the street.
It is my right, I do not need a reason.
Maybe I'll go to church to pray for strength.
Maybe I'll stay home because there is no god.
Maybe I'll march for, or against god.
It is my right, I do not need a reason.
Maybe I'll get my friends together.
Maybe we'll have a bigger march.
Maybe we'll have a million man march.
It is our right. We need no reason.
Maybe I'll buy a gun.
Maybe my friends will buy guns.
Maybe we'll march with our guns.
It is our right. We do not need a reason.
Isn't it time to return to an age of reason?
