They Banned The Color Green


They Banned The Color Green December 11, 2016

They banned the color green

How could you be so mean

No color green displayed

An order, that's what they said

Disobey the foreign land and die

Wear green and say goodbye

Kill irish culture, put us down

Steal our land by a foreign crown

Slaves taken both white and black

Wear green and never come back

They came with power

No option, just the final hour

The gap of danger

They stole my country

They killed my people

Grave yards don't tell lies

One day our heroes will rise

They banned the color green

How could you be so mean
