Tradition


Let’s take tradition

And turn it inside out

Make sparklers catch fire

As we stand up and shout

Different ideas

Heated arguments

But together we roam open streets 

Without fear 

Don’t let hate tear down bridges we have built 

Connecting tenements to mansions 

Was never our strength 

Improve one block at a time

Feed a stranger

Hug a friend 

Be thankful for the ability to pretend

It’s not illegal to want more

Fight for justice 

And scream from the pain

Decide what is important 

And fight for what’s right

It is not perfect 

But we can continue to put up the good fight
