F Fight to win a just and equal deal
R Rights demand today, and do not kneel!
E Equal in demand for means to live
E Equal in demand that leaders give
L Liberty to seek and speak the truth
E Energy to fight all the uncouth
B Bastions of belief that change will come
A Adamance for all to gain not some
N Nation first, and not a party’s greed
O Onslaught in the streets of those in need
N Narrative of choice is Freedom’s voice
T Time, a witness of the people’s pain
O Objects of the ones who pocket gain
D Duty sold for bribes of highest price
A Actor-leaders play with lives like dice
Y Young and old! Bring back the Golden Age
