ResIstanbul

 

 

 

I wanted to see what was happening.

Switched the TV to CNN Turk.

A penguin documentary filled my screen.

While CNN International was live on the scene.

 

We are all penguins

But some more than others.

Police brutality unites

Children and mothers.

 

Bring us your tear gas,

Some water from your cannon

The camera goes both ways

We will force you to re-examine

 

Your brutal theft of all we hold dear

Your violence, your hate, your culture of fear.

Your encroachment upon our secular state

Your attempt to undermine us. Alienate.

 

This park is a symbol

 One of many last stands

I pity you having to watch

As our movement expands

 

This isn’t about one country

One city, one town

This is global resistance

And we’re not backing down

Our Freedom of expression,

Our Freedom of assembly

Our Freedom of press

Our right to expect nothing less

 

You have taken our liberty

Our sight and our lives

Now sit back and watch

As your world crumbles and dies.

 

Because we’re not resting until

You tumble from power

Until you beg for forgiveness

Hour after hour

 

We are all penguins

But some more than others.

Police brutality unites

Children and mothers.
