Throwing Stones in 2020

After A Stone’s Throw Away by Paul Weller
News just in
of last year’s protests starting again in Chile
And hundreds of thousands massing in
the city streets for women’s rights in Poland
Burned-out squatters turning out in Johannesburg
From east to west and north to south
and workers walking out on the borders of Yorkshire
in Barnoldswick. This may be a
time when the wall of power is shedding only stones
But if we learn and grow and do not throw
this moment aside, one day we will wear the whole wall away.
