Placards vs. Teargas


                      

                                   
Then
Placards were our only weapons
Our hearts pounded in sedition
Feet moved in aggression
Our hearts
Seething in hot anger
Anger of a failed people

But placards
Cannot vie with teargas

We
            D          I           S          P          E          R          S          E          D
                        Like frightened
                        Black birds

Placards gently descending our hands
