They say she has pluck
Because she seeks to battle
Shady characters
Who seek for their own gains
Maybe she’s a rebel
But she wishes others would fight
For their fellow citizens
It would make this so much easier
If they all fought for each other’s
Ability to do good
In the world
Instead of fighting for the almighty dollar.
Trampling the weak and the poor.

  3. Sadly this is happening the world over and even what I thought were social minded governments are being encouraged to sell or lease off land and sea areas for others profit destroying the environment and wildlife.
