We Occupy (A Poem)

We Occupy
To lift the veil from your eyes
We stand united
Fall divided
In mainstream press
We are derided

We occupy
To shake you from your apathy
Won’t allow these Governments
To do as they please
Protesting without violence
We will not stand silent
They attempt to force capitulation
With state violence

We learned the lessons
Of the past
The corrupt state
We’ll take to task

We occupy
For us all
United we must stand
For divided we fall
Against oppression et al
We will stand-fast
To make sure today’s freedoms
Are not our last.
