Freedom Myth


We CAN’T do
whatever we want

None of us are as free
as we’d like to be

Though we pretend to be
masters of our restrictions

We can never
rise above the hypocrisy
imbedded in this democracy

Checks and balances

Cause we can’t be trusted

Regulate our base impulses

Control every urge

We got dancing lawyers
making laws
other lawyers will appeal
in marble courts
now televised

No surprise

the social contract
is awash in fine print

that nobody can see

Our natural freedoms
sacrificed
at the alter of security

freedom

    Freedom can bind us and used as an excuse for fencing in.. Have a great holiday.
