I love this anthology and what it represents and to have a protest poem included.

Buy it here.


  1. a loud, fast-moving, and aggressive form of rock music
  2. a worthless person (often used as a general term of abuse)
  3. an inexperienced young person
  4. a criminal
  5. substance that smolders when ignited
  6. in poor or bad condition
  7. to trick or deceive
  8. to utterly defeat
