Antoni Ooto


“Yes I do.”

“What was it about…?”

“The times—times, I think.”

“Was it like the old time,
or finally, the right time?”


we heard the call
from miles away    plain-as-day.

That’s why we had to    stand,
show our support    you know. 

And when it was done
another’d begun…

because justice    again
is far too slow.”
