“A Light From The Tunnel”
by James Brett
We went to DC for a
needed redress.
We couldn’t envision the
approaching mess.
Joined with men of strength,
we traveled there,
There was no way of knowing
our trials and despair.
We broke bread with our brothers,
our hearts… they were warm.
We had no way of knowing
the devil’s planned storm.

You sprayed, you concussed,
you shot and you beat us.
You don’t represent us
and you will not defeat us.
We went home in peace
as instructed that day.
We have a message to tell
and that won’t go away.

You can raid us and jail us,
and our families are torn.
But make no mistake devil,
for this we were born.
Our children are watching
you made a mistake.
The future is theirs and
it’s not yours to take.

You drag us through court
and you throw us in jails
God’s spirit is moving and
light never fails.
The devil is playing
but God’s love is warm
Get ready you tyrants,
he’s bringing a storm.

Now your breaking my soul
and trying jail me.
I was there and saw what
others didn’t see.
You’re scared of the Truth
and the story I will tell.
You keep trying to break me
but you can just go to hell.

After removal of rights
and all I’ve been through,
It seems very clear
what I now have to do.
I will do what I did
in the tunnel that day,
Watching all your evil
in complete dismay.
I will pick up my flag
and say “ I am through”
Raise my finger up high
and say screw you.

After being abused and
destroyed for that day.
God help us, please guide us
ONLY YOU KNOW THE WAY.
