I attended “horrible riots” in Seattle and Portland
Bubble machines, dances, peace signs: it soon got out of hand
People shared music, food, and laughter
Chanting, dancing, marching, and relaxing after

Yes, at night there was violence, people were fired upon
But on our side of the barricades, NO weapons were drawn
I am told we were a “real problem,” completely out of control…
“No justice, no peace” is a problem, until we make our nation whole
