We’re Speaking Now

A poetic tribute

Around the country
we hear you.
We applaud as you declare,
“I’m speaking!”
You stood your ground calmly,
no matter how hard he tried
to cut you off.
Those few words made us
feel seen nationwide.
We remember someone
like him
who lacked respect
for us,
and we remember your words
for next time.
