WTO Protests

Storm trooper-like riot police
Each remembering wives
Advance in line to keep the peace
Tense and afraid for their lives.
Taunting foolish and unafraid
Lewd protestors taking offence
Engaged in an anarchist raid
Incite everyone to violence.
No globalization without
Representation, the signs said.
Until all the words were rubbed out
In tank track gray and tear gas red.

Now where was I at this instance?
Safely watching from a distance.
