Say what’s on your mind
and find the right words to do it.
You’ve been through it a hundred
times and every rhyme has it’s own flair.
You seem to care what others think
and it stinks when they try to silence you.
You don’t resort to violence, lest your voice
is quelled. It will be a cold day in hell
when the cost of free speech is prohibitive.
Expressive or excessive, your words matter.
They may not always believe what you say,
but they defend your right to say it!
