Upland Peace Camp #1 subtitle Suburban Police Farce
(there were no less than six suburban Police forces guarding us and blockading cars from traveling up West 24th St., to the Army Reserve Center and our protest. I was a support person, my girlfriend was prepared to do CD. There were no arrests so I have no Poems bout this particular girlfriend being arrested. Also, the FBI was there and took pictures, possibly because Jose Pena, from the Unity of Salvadorean Workers, was there. Oh, and the state police were there,too. Perfect time to rob a bank.)
This should really be read aloud.
