Freedom Fighters

Freedom Fighters

They are coming.
And they are young.

They are yellow and red,
white and pale.
They are black.

And they are coming.

They are green as olives,
adding their numbers,
subtracting their numbers.

They are gung ho.
And they are coming.

They are brown as nuts.
They are multiplying,

They are young.
And they are coming
home, one piece at a time.
