June 4th, '89

An ancient culture
in an ancient land
noted for insight
and wisdom
Openned fire on its people
its students
its future today

Two-thousand six-hundred
dead on the ground
ten-thousand injured
so the newscaster says
Those who watched this
against yourself
saddened in our hearts

In all your years
your knowledge
your wisdom
Have you never learned
that oppression fans
the fires
of Freedom?
