I MAKE A FIST

Written by: RUDOLPH RINALDI

I MAKE A FIST
AND STICK IT HIGH IN THE AIR
MAKE IT TIGHT
AS TIGHT AS MY REAR
AS A SIGN OF DEFIANCE
AND OF FREEDOM

THEY MAKE A FIST 
AND PRESS IT HARD ON MY HEAD
IN MY STOMACH
UP MY REAR
AS A SIGN OF CONTROL
AND OF POWER

SOMETIMES I THINK 
THAT THEY JUST WANT ME 
TO THINK
THAT I AM A JUST A PUPPET
AND THAT MY FIST 
IS JUST AN EXTENSION OF THEIRS

SO I TIGHTEN MY FIST 
AND MY REAR
STAND ON MY TOES
AND REACH UP HIGHER
AS A SIGN OF CONTROL
AND OF POWER
