I Could Never Be Like A.P. Dostie

Written by: Maria Hernandez
About: Anthony Paul Dostie

If to make a stand I had to give my life,

I would quickly stand down and let somebody else make it right.

I speak cowardly I know, but that would be my true choice.

Back then for me to raise my voice

And be heard by the masses

Would mean my and all their asses.

A.P. Dostie stood up to get black suffrage, and I still don't know why

He made the choice to stand up and die.

Times have changed but not that much,

Yeah, you can vote but I doubt anything would change a whole bunch.

So I guess I could give my life

To make something right, but I'm not prepared to make that sacrifice.
