Speak out

And a vast paranoia sweeps across the land
And America turns the attack on its
Twin Towers Into the beginning of the Third World War

The war with the Third World

And the terrorists in Washington
Are drafting all the young men
And no one speaks

And they are rousting out

All the ones with turbans
And they are flushing out
All the strange immigrants

And they are shipping all the young men
To the killing fields again
And no one speaks

And when they come to round up
All the great writers and poets and painters
The National Endowment of the Arts of Complacency
Will not speak

While all the young men
Will be killing all the young men
In the killing fields again

So now is the time for you to speak
All you lovers of liberty
All you lovers of the pursuit of happiness

All you lovers and sleepers
Deep in your private dreams
Now is the time for you to speak

O silent majority
Before they come for you

Lawrence Ferlinghetti
