Swarming Like Wolfpacks

Our ancestors struggled on despite the attacks
Facing the bigots who swarmed like wolf packs
Sensing that time was dear
Could they face another year
The blood-stained smears
The hateful jeers
Being forced to adhere
Wishing that they had a spear
To shout a warrior’s cheer
Facing America’s sneer
Yes, dammit, we are here
Year after year
Just like our ancestors we struggle on despite the attacks
Facing today’s bigots who still swarm like wolf packs
