Battle Cry for Harm Reduction

Tune: Battle Hymn of the Republic

 

Carfentanil’s an opioid

That makes an elephant drunk

One hundred times more toxic than

The morphine-mental funk

 

We have to find the reason why

Street drugs are laced with JUNK

 

Who profits from this crime?

CHORUS

 

Sing for health and social justice

March for health and social justice

Work for health and social justice

Harm Reduction is humane!

 

Street opioids are everywhere

Our young folks they do kill

We’re tired of people dying from

Contaminated pills

 

Who profits from addictions and

Prescribing too much too….

 

Harm reduction’s just humane!

 

CHORUS

 

Sing for health and social justice

March for health and social justice

Work for health and social justice

Harm reduction is humane!

 

Safety sites are vital tools

Let’s give our heads a shake

It’s better that we’re  SAVING  lives

Than moral stigmas make

 

We need political gumption 

To confront this ugly state

 

Harm reduction’s just humane!

 

CHORUS

 

Sing for health and social justice

March for health and social justice

Work for health and social justice

Harm reduction IS humane!
