Who Would Not Fight For Freedom

A poem by Beverly Stock.

Who would not fight for Freedom?

Who would not draw the sword?

Who would not up and rally

At this vulgar Republican’s words?


Women’s rights are ravaged,

Education pressed under his thumb

Should we go across the ocean

Until his reign is done?


Who would not fight for truth

Who would not end this tirade

Who will be the pallbearers

When we bury this insane charade.





My found poem combines some lyrics from Who Would Not Fight for Freedom, credited as an Old Scotch Air, and included in Songs from the Public Domain by Benjamin Bloomfield, 27 November 2015, with my original verse.
