MLK: questions…

mlk1

If MLK was here today,
some wonder what the man might say.
Would he oppose Obama’s wars,
or secretly back them behind closed doors?
Would he have worn a Trayvon hood and stood among the angry youth,
or deemed them all brash and uncouth?
Would he speak up for Palestine?
Or make excuses to hide behind?
Would he cheer when unions went on strike
or back the “plights” of GM and Nike?
Would he march to remember Malcolm X
or say his ideas were too complex?
Would he fight for the rights of the undocumented,
or waver like a spinster who is longwinded?
These questions are really not for King
But for those who today want freedom to ring.
