​If I could stop you I would

​If I could stop you I would

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would

Illustrate your evils,

your works and bad deeds.

Stand up tall, eye to eye

Sacrifice all, be willing to die.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would

Shout and scream,

Riot in the streets,

Rally my people to a war-cry

For your defeat.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would

Clear away the fog of your lies,

Bring down your tower,

Stop Fascism’s reprise.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would

Use words as my shield,

Sonnet as my spear,

Create works of protest,

That make you cower in fear.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would

Raise an army of poets,

Painters, and musicians.

We’d write songs, tell stories,

Paint scenes foretelling your fall.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would

Protect what is sacred.

Bring about a renaissance of change.

End the racism, hatred,

The violence committed in your name.

If I could stop you I would.

If I could stop you I would
