Peaceful Protest

I was at the corner of Yonge and Bloor last Friday July 9, 2010. There was an elderly lady handing out flyers to invite people to protest the police action at the G20. She was in such a hurry to hand them out and get out of there. She kept checking her watch. She even told me she had a limited time in which to hand them out. I found that very odd so I wrote this poem about it.

"Peaceful Protest" By Susan Fischer

Busiest corner in the city, what a great place to hide.
Handing out my flyers, swallowing her pride.
Scoping every corner, watching the time.
Makes me wonder, when peaceful protest became a crime.
