Enough is enough.
You can choose to look away, but
never again can you say I didn’t know.
You have the right to remain silent,
but I don’t
If you’re not outraged,
you’re not paying attention.
I can’t believe we’re still
debating this shit.
“Protest signs posted on the gate surrounding the White House”

- this poem was completely crafted out of
protest signs found around the Web. The actual signs can be seen here, here,
here, here, here, here, and here. Two of them were paraphrased from quotes by Lisa Borden and William Wilberforce.
