January 15th marks the spot,
the spot that place the dot
of a man nurtured for a cause.
Colour, power – could not pause
the work he came to do.
To organise Montgomery bus strike
after Rosa Parks’s arrest.
Result: US Supreme Court said
segregation on buses is illegal.
One step ahead for blacks.
He led peaceful protest in Birmingham.
The city in May 1963, away they slam
the laws of before which block
Blacks from eating, sitting and talk
where they wish.
Remember the walk on Washington
where 250,000 people marched in August 28, 1963?
Well two years later dear President Lyndon
that is Johnson, agreed
to remove all barriers against black voting rights.
Blacks were happy
but many others were choking with hate.
A hate which led to the assassination of
Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968.
This weekend think of equality for all men.
