The protesters are returning to
                 Copley Square,
henna-heads and gray-
   beards, with just
a little more spring in
          their step,
which they will need to
   stop this war, all 50 of
them on this dazzling  
            Boston Sunday, outnumbered

even by the homeless
     sprawling on the grass.

Itís been a long time.
