Wendy Trevino

 

25,000 in San Francisco.
Twenty five thousand people marching with
A “Trump chicken” down Market Street toward
The Ferry Building because “Trump’s a big
Chicken for not releasing his taxes.”
I can’t stop thinking about it. I mean
Not 30 minutes away in Berkeley
There were Nazis sieg heiling in the streets
Marching with about 200 other
“Speech rights activists” & only about
200 anti-racists there to fight
Them. & “Trump chickens” & taxes were all
Most people could be certain about that
Day. Oh! & nonviolence. Right. No violence.
