What holds the rainbow down?

What holds the rainbow down?

Words of the angry or angered?

Words with a hashtag or without?

The rainbow is coming down.

 

What holds the rainbow down?

Words – some, more violent than rocks

Used as shields, more potent than plastic

To wage the war and broken peace

Rainbow come down.

 

What holds the rainbow down?

Truth – yours or mine?

Power -yours or mine?

Love – yours or mine?

Rainbow come down.

 

What holds the rainbow down?

The rainbow is coming down.

Rainbow come down.
