liberty

LIBERTY

All humans are free
The tree huggers claim
How lofty and pleasing are their aims
But I often wonder if they are insane?
Man cannot and will never be free 
Not when there are limits on his 
God given liberty
Laws abound that do beat us down
They that were elected in a supposedly free vote 
Easily forget we who made them gods on earth
Why does every official have the need
To ransack my home on a whim
Not even caring if I am home?
Why has the government given 
A two fingered salute to my individuality?
Am I not a member of a democratic society?
They trample me with words 
That do try hard to confuse  
Why are laws and government policy
Of such complexity?
Why must I always need a lawyer
To make those in power aware that I am free?
I may not physically be in chains
But like a baton that’s wielded with intent to kill
The terms I have to live under 
Will surely reduce me to a mass if ill will
Come what may I will make 
Those who abandon humanity 
Pay quite dearly 
My conscience will spur me 
And I will stand up for society 
Am I not after all a man that god gave innate liberty?
Mr Authority do think of me
I suggest and hope you will treat 
Me dearly 
For I am a brother to thee
I will fight and trumpet equality 
I will not be created a new man by you easily
I know the value of my humanity
Every day is but a headache
For I constantly fight for what is my greatest property:
The ability to be me
