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. Trapped within, 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.
