The poem is below.

I'm not a label

Labelled a conspiracy nut because I don't believe mainstream media.
Labelled a terrorist because I think my government lies.
Labelled an Anon because I agree with most their points.
Labelled an anarchist because I think democracy has failed.
Labelled a racist because my skin is white.
Labelled a Bible basher because I believe in god.
Labelled a Dole bum because I didn't have a job.
Labelled a freak because I refuse to conform.
Labelled crazy because my mind works faster.
Labelled lazy because I like to sit and think.
Labelled liberal because I think they have a good heart.
Labelled strange because I observe life.
Labelled a druggy because I smoke weed.
Labelled a hippy because I love the earth.

I am all of these and a lot more! Take your labels from my door!
