y’all were always so quiet
forgetting it was sylvia and marsha who started this fight
now the flag’s more white than
rainbow-bright
tryin’ to bury the fact that the first pride was a riot
between us
was never a conversation
just a hostage negotiation
the items up for deliberation –
our humanity for your participation
our sanity for your liberation

y’all reach out only when you need a token
no care for the bodies broken
and then,as appreciation, y’all get
your much anticipated liberation
and i’m still stuck in damnation
                                      damn this nation
