Almighty Democracy, your empowering definition!
So glad you exist, we thank our forefathers for your creation.
The rights you grant us, the freedom to congregate,
so we can deliberate, & in peace demonstrate.
India & the US, nations alive by your rules,
farmers marching to Mumbai, children marching out of US schools,
both yearning for something they rightfully should enjoy,
farmers shouldn’t be poor, children o’er school shootings should’t have to cry.
Praise you Necessity, mother of all inventions: Change we must!
So hear us, all ye in power, in who we’ve placed our trust.
We gather, we pledge, we peacefully resolve to create
a movement & a wave. Our humble request: Please help change our fate.
