RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg)

RBG (Ruth Bader Ginsburg)

Tiny warrior standing tall,

Brooklyn girl, notorious,

Ahead of her time,

Ahead of her ‘place’,

Fearless woman,

Standing for the oppressed.

She married law,

And justice.

She married a man,

Who recognized her flame,

And fought her fight.

She birthed children,

And paths to equality.

Tiny warrior standing tall,

Voice for the voiceless.

She will be missed,

This fearless woman,

Oh, how she will be missed.

R.I.P. now, our RBG,

R.I.P., as we proudly inherit your light,

And carry it on,
