Resisting Arrest |by Alex Andy Phuong

Uniting uniformed unity
You and I defy the sky
Team work and collaboration
Up to personal discretion
Civil Rights
Civility
Minorities against majorities
Stick to the status quo
But should we…?
Really?
Defy thy stars
And seek new avenues
Harness the power of creativity
And merge sense with sensibility
“Utopia” was conceived by Thomas More
But all must still must strive for more
For he was A Man for All Seasons
Arrests might be criminal
But people cannot be subliminal
If they want to break free
Listen to words of wisdom from me
“Know thyself, be thyself, harmoniously”
