Bang the Gong!
Protest! Protest!
By all means, protest!
Doth thou protesteth
        too much?
Not in the least,
        nor the most. 
Bang the gong!
And on and on,
For when you stop
The fire that burneth 
        doth wane. 

This time do not
Leave such unattended, 
And do not you yourself
Snuff it out. 
March and shout
Until the powers that be
Heed the power that is
And work it all out. 

*protest as long as needed,
 but w/o riotous violence
