It's a Vote

Saying you are
A citizen

Folks were lynched
Folks were shot
Folks' communities were gerrymandered
Folks who believed
In the Constitution were lied to
Burned out
Bought and sold
Because they agreed
All Men Were Created Equal

Folks vote to make us free

Good for the Folks
Good for Us

~ Excerpt from "VOTE" featured in Make Me Rain: Poems & Prose by Nikki Giovanni
