Goddess of Democracy

On this date in nineteen eighty-nine
Chinese students all formed a line
Erecting a thirty-three foot statue
A reminder of their realistic views

It served as homage to The American Way
Alikened to the Statue of Liberty, which may
... Be representative of freedom and justice
A collective view, perhaps - but trusted ...

- Tristram
