You Want A Wall?
You want a wall? we will build a wall of prickly pear
to keep you out we will hunker low in our landscape
dry river beds will spring to life in a moment
under the right conditions, our land is ripe for spring
growth, red earth coats the ancient shoulders of our mothers
and together we daughters are bound in blood, we raise
voices, concrete cannot contain song that will be free.
