~ My Quintessential Campaigner~

She rises very early
And dresses up so smart
The essence of her being
An empathetic heart.

She marches for her causes
And waves her banner high,
For freedom and for justice
Her passion will never die.

It has been this way for her
Since she was a little girl,
Children treated badly
Always had her in a whirl.

She loves the world she lives in
Its oppressed and stifled folk,
The beasts and little children ~
Their pain to her no joke.

Discrimination she cannot abide
In any shape or form,
She stands in lines of protest
At risk of her own harm.

She wears the ribbons of causes,
The bracelets and the bows
T-Shirts with campaign slogans
She has lots of those.

She signs petitions for Parliament
And acknowledges the Land
Belongs to it's Native People
To whom she offers a helping hand.

The Quintessential Campaigner
Who shudders at the thought of war,
Do I know her very well - Yes I do
This is a child I bore.
