Burn It (from Trump poetry)

This was written as lyrics, so itís repetitive....

Burn It

Thereís change in the air
Thereís blood on the streets
Weíre drawing the lines
Weíre up on our feet
It comes down to now
Itís wrong or itís right
Weíre standing our ground
Weíre ready to fight

Burn it, Brother
Burn it down
Turn it, Sister
Turn it around
The futureís here
Itís the past again
Burn it down
So we can rise again

We worship false gods
And choose money over souls
We count as worthless
The sick, the homeless and the old
Weíve shielded ours eyes
Away from decency and light
Now weíve awakened
To find a terminal night

Burn it, Brother
Burn it down
Turn it, Sister
Turn it around
The futureís here
Itís the past again
Burn it down
So we can rise again

Thereís change in the air
Thereís blood on the streets
We lift our voices
Weíre up on our feet
This is our moment
Itís wrong or itís right
This is our future
Weíre ready to fight

Burn it, Brother
Burn it down
Turn it, Sister
Turn it around
The futureís here
Itís the past again
Burn it down
So we can rise again

Enough (From Trump collection)

ENOUGH

The flames of fire from yesterday
Burns my face with shame
Weíd pretended that things were different
Deep-down they were the same.

Black rock below our feet
Our marching footsteps like a roar
This time we cannot allow
Things to go on as before

So we rise up and stand together
We need to end this forever
Itís been said
We all bleed red
Enough

Hating people for no sin
But the color of their skin
Is a cancer on society
That will eat us from within

Destruction swirling all around
So dangerous I want to leave
But I canít unsee what Iíve seen
We heard him saying, ďI canít breathe.Ē

So we rise up and stand together
We need to end this forever
Itís been said
We all bleed red
Enough

Poetry in The Time of Trump

We wrap ourselves in Stars and Stripes
And hide behind Godís might
Proclaim false persecution and
Pretend weíve lost our rights

Humanity and Justice
Are left bleeding in the street
Equality stands silently
While brotherhood just weeps

Iím on my knees
Iím begging please
Can you forgive us for our sin
I pray for you
To guide us through
This nightmare that weíre in.

Those who walked before us cry
The man who had a dream
We parrot back the words he said
But donít know what they mean

Oh my Lord
Forgive us for
This ugly thing
That weíve become
We turned our hearts
Toward the dark
Instead of toward the Son

Iím on my knees
Iím begging please
Can you forgive us for our sin
I pray for you
To guide us through
This nightmare that weíre in.
