It's 3:23 A.M.
And I'm awake
because my great great grandchildren
Won't let me sleep
They ask me in dreams
What did you do while the planet was plundered?
What did you do when the earth was unraveling
Surely you did something
When the seasons started flailing?
As the mammals, repiles & birds were all dying?
Did you fill the streets with protest?
When democracy was stolen
What did you do once you knew?
You did something.
