Martin Luther King
Conor, Age 10, East Durham, NY

                      Martin Luther had a dream,
and also had a gift.
He would fight with works,
not with fists.
No matter how much he lost
he never gave up the fight.
Getting stabbed in the day
and bombed in the night.
But all those days
and all those nights
were devoted to equal rights.
He had a dream, a world sunlit.
If only he were alive to see it.
A brave man with a brave crew,
he believed in rights and so should you.
