Just a Book?

Written by: Chelsie Hansen

I use to be the people's conscience, sturdy as the grey china wall
But now Im the menacing red constriction of a stop sign
Just a book

I use to set a righteous par so virtuous, pure and white
But now Im dusted,rusted, stories without glories
Just a book

I use to be God's guiding hand blue and gentle
But now it seems Im his oppressive finger pushing down on brown tainted morals
Just a book
