how uppity we can be

my oh my
look at all of us
standin' by
watchin' you
plot your little tricks
and try to see
what sticks
when you throw it against the wall:

face it
you don't have
bullets enough or time

as we stand up to you,
we will show you
the mercies you have withheld

as we retake our civil rights
as we stand tall
and free --

how uppity we can be.
