When Dreams Become Nightmares

Over twenty one million people

in the so called land of the free
denied their civil right to vote
for unsatisfactory ID

If you’re old black both and poor
a southern student studying hard
a vote will be denied to you
without a suitable ID card

Not any old card with a photo
to be accepted much more specific
to drive a car and carry a gun
underlines your rights ‘Terrific!’
