Simon Says: How Many More?

by Simon Jester

(with apologies to Heather Alexander)

Without warrants, truncheons swing
Wanton shootings’ piercing ring
No one knocks, they barge ahead –
Another innocent lies dead.

Midnight nightmare, bloody hand
All of us must take a stand
Sound the call, take up the cry
How many innocents now must die?

“Follow orders as you’re told” –
That should make your blood run cold
Protest till you die or drop
This trampling of rights must stop

There’s no reason, there’s no gain
No knock searches are insane
Let not one excuse pass by
How many innocents now must die?

Guard your children, do not fail
Send these bullies off to jail
Write the Congress, join the fight
And they won’t come by in the night

Use your vote and use your head
Make these no-knock searches dead
Raise the flag up to the sky
How many innocents now must die?

Dawn has broke, the time has come
Never more let mourning come
Never more let innocent die
Let that be your battle cry

Midnight nightmare, bloody hand
All of us must take a stand
Sound the call, take up the cry
How many innocents now must die?

Without warrants, truncheons swing
Wanton shootings’ piercing ring
No one knocks, they barge ahead –
Another innocent lies dead.

Lawless nightmare, bloody hand
All of us must take a stand
Sound the call, take up the cry
How many innocents now must die?
How many innocents now must die?
How many innocents now must die?
HOW MANY MORE MUST WE SEE DIE?
