Confederate flags and swastikas a must,
A protest in mass for a cause they felt just.
Women and men marching lockstep did stride,
Demonstrating to us all their white power pride.

Helmets and bats and shields on display,
Many with rifles, oh what an array.
Yelling and screaming of oaths from the past,
Oh what a harrowing specter they cast.

Met with resistance the melee ensued,
Seems like the Civil War has just been renewed.
Martin Luther King just rolled over in his grave,
For the land of the free and the home of the brave.

An impassioned supremacist drove into the crowd,
Death now descends on the town like a shroud.
Heather Heyer died for equality that day,
a casualty of hatred and bigotry on parade.

Racism and bigotry have no place in this land,
Diversity and equality for which I will stand.
“with liberty and justice for all” I do swear,
I'll stand up for equality and show that I care.
