He protested

They shackled him and beat him, the news announcer said

Yes, he refused to “go gentle into that dark night”, refused and

Protested his innocence, he and thousands more,

Protested his innocence right up to death’s door,

Protested and defiant, proud, not guilty of the crime

He protested. They cuffed him, and beat him,

Then stuck the needle in his arm.
