Sit-In at the Sycamore

Day 10 of the 2012 April PAD Challenge on

The family encircles the ancient trunk
lost in the lobby of a five-star hotel.
Enclasped in hands armored in adamant,
they chant up strength as the protectors of peace
apply a pepper spray swab to their eyes.
Even the firmest hand loses its grip
as camera phones preserve the scene to share
with friends on Facebook and Twitter for a like.
