What I would Say,
If I could say
would be daring
and maybe a little bit different too.
I would say how you have gotten rid of the best
the cream of the crop.
All of your best are gone from the top
yet you know this
and you show this
but nothing is done to overthrow this.
students have marched
parents have yelled
and yet we're all defeated.
sometimes i wonder if you really want to change at all
standing there looking so tall
mighty and powerful over everyone's heads
yet crumbling from the bottom and ripping kids from their beds
their roots ripped up from the ground again
lost and alone, you stand and defend
blind enough to say we can do it
when those words taste false on our tongues
and i wish i could prove it.
but alas i stand alone in my thoughts
words like beaten children who no longer fought
a fight that was lost
a war never over
but to the districts, i believe
they're totally screwed over
