Hour 8

Gigan: Roe v Wade

They tried overruling history
but we would not let them, we came

to the streets. Waited in the bunker
that is a metro station in NYC.
We may have stood in silence for an hour

but you shall hear our voices.
You rid the country of its safety, pulled the trigger

on children’s deaths. Count their lingering
ghosts, count your own sins.

In this graveyard, we are pro-justice.
They tried overruling history

but you shall hear our voices.
Now my heart cannot go to rest at peace
when I think of all the people who have fought this battle before.

You did not ban abortion from this nation,
but took away the safety net for half the population.
