Rosa Parks sat so Martin Luther could walk
Martin Luther walked so Barack Obama could run
A brilliant couplet and virtuosic display of word play.
Rosa Parks SAT at the front of the bus defiantly.
Martin Luther led civil rights marches, or WALKS.
Barack Obama RAN for president.
Without the acts of Rosa Parks, MLK, and other civil rights activists, black people still probably wouldn’t even be allowed to vote, let alone get elected President
