Cease and Dissent
They're redefining sanctity,
Brutally enforcing harmony,
Encouraging the surrender of solidarity,
The best kept secret, our dichotomy.
Finally a moment of clarity,
After living so long for others,
Never again will I be longing,
For those sacrilegious tethers,
Breathing in the fresh air again,
After so long in the basement,
Healthy doses of the fair and even,
A welcome change from containment.
My own country,
Sustained by subtle sin,
It's my resistance,
And my holy duty,
To discern the truth from malarkey,
I will resist,
And inspire righteous dissent,
For the truth shall set me free.
