    Clowns of Freedom

    Tiananmen in ‘89
    the lone wolf tank protester
    stands up to a tank battalion
    crazy freedom gesture

    climbs up the tank
    chats up the driver
    wonder we may what did he say
    You’re going to have to kill me!
    no I won’t get out of the way

    then climbs back down
    and stops the tank again
    he carries shopping bags
    like an astonishing courageous clown

    America went wild
    it’s burned in memory
    not an iron or bamboo curtain
    but freedom for every child

    Mitrovica vs KFOR in summer of ‘12
    logs in the road
    Christians standing their historical ground
    This is Serbia!
    only a brave few remain around

    the bravest Irish in autumn ’13
    said
    USA war machine out of Shannon!
    while she occupied the runway
    she went off to jail at seventy nine

    a rump government tank arrives spring ‘14
    Ukrainians know the drill
    men of Mariupol hold it back with bare hands
    and outstretched arms
    bold crazy act of human will

    man climbs up the tank
    hampers the driver
    wonder we may what did he say
    You’re not our government!
    no we won’t get out of the way

    today Beijing tank man is where
    will he come help the people west
    there’re troubles over there
    seems cameras found him best
