was I with you there
or did I find an last-minute excuse
to be elsewhere?
When they targeted our youth
Where exactly was I
while you threw tiles from a roof
and rained screaming slate from the sky?
When they rounded up our weak
did you see me standing tall
or was I in the comfy seats
at home, avoiding it all?
When they come for me
where will you be?
Will we fight together this enemy
or will I be stood there, lonely?
