13th June 2020

Tear gas
A warning shout along the protest line 
Manned by disparate mix of commoners 
All hoping that for once
Perseverance will overcome
The power of unrelenting force. 
It was and ever will be 
A weapon of unconscionable cruelty 
Stealing away the victims right
To see or simply breathe

Brace yourselves brothers and sisters
The assault will follow fast
Batons, shields and rubber bullets 
Leaving their mark on unprotected flesh
That last true bastion of right
Against unbridled tyranny
