Thomas J. Dooley

DARE YOU

I dare you to say your free

With your red hat on and not know what that means to me

Saying the exact same thing as the commander of greed

You have no originality you don't know how to think

 

I dare you to say your free

With your read hat on, claiming no collusion

Alone in a room with Putin what you think they were doing

Comparing the hairs on each other's chest

 

I dare you to say your free

With your red hat on, excluding those who are different from you

Your culter is so boring, diversity is what create great things

Hate does nothing to uplift community

 

I dare you to say your free

With your read hat on, repeating all the lies you heard

"If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed."

Hitler said that your greatness represents that.

 

I dare you to say your free

With your read hat on, needing your gun for protection

When all it protects is fear and intimidation

You are the new slave to this administration

 

I dare you to say your free

    Creatively showing the contradictions and restrictions in political absolutism. A fine read.
