Enough is Enough

Enough is enough!

I want to yell it
From the top of my lungs,
off the tallest building,
so even the President
can hear me in his
White House.

Enough is enough!

How many kids gotta die
Two Thousand PLUS OBVIOUSLY ainít enough.
Supreme Court all up for grabs,
with right wing conservatives all lining up.
What about Roe v. Wade?
No worries I suppose.
If it all gets overturned
weíll just go back to coat hanger days.

Enough is Enough!

Donít you see,
Theyíre trying like Hell
to box us all in
program us like little religious robots.
Paying for votes, pacifying global issues,
While battered women and children
starve in the gutter for passersby.
Not in my country.

Enough is enough!

Telling me who I can marry.
Telling me what I can put into my body.
Telling me what I can and canít say.
Telling me my rights under the constitution
have been reduced b/c of the patriot act?
Telling me how to act within my own home.

Enough is enough!
