Our Friends Were Not Silent

Dedicated to Heather Heyer and all who died for the right to confront the Right

Our friends were not silent
In solidarity stood
To protest and to witness
Those who divide by colour and blood
Where the white right unite
Claiming that they were born great
Those who spoke for good stood
Fell in the face of fanatics hate.

They could have killed a thousand
They killed one: we know her name
A banner – a slogan for love over hatred
Why Christ to be crucified to earth came.

They can burn their wooden crucifixes –
Their history of hate can tell…
We all will face judgement day on death:
They will burn with their crosses in hell!!!

Have your say...
