Idle No More by Skyler Alsup

Idle No More by Skyler Alsup

There’s no more peace.
You’ve brought the war.
We mustn’t stand idle no more.
We won’t stand by as history repeats, if every color united they’d have to retreat.
No more racism, no more stripping our lands.
The desecration must come to an end.
Come my brothers and come all my friends, together we stand, were all colored men.
There’s no more peace, now its time for war, we mustn’t stand idle no more.
