I wish I could
Fight for the good
Of civil right
Like activist…

Common jury
My injury
Will make all bleed
Till I am freed.

Stretch out your claws
The rule of law
Is sacrosanct
Stone me to death

I will always sing;
…Solidarity
Solidarity
For ever.

But am just a man
Smiling for the fans
Inside deep I cry
But outward I smile

Going against my will
All because of bill
Am compromised
And harmonised

By today’s winners
And tomorrow losers
I wish I could fight
But my hands are tight.

    Must be brave to stand for the right things. Many great men and women died and fought for human rights. Martyr are many in our world. Martin Luther King Jr. told the people. They fear his words.
