"Political" Two sides.

Setting sights on freedom of speech

To take it out with verbal bullets

Opinions backed into corners 

Mouths like guns 

Cock it and pull it. 

 

Shoot the one who thinks for themselves! 

Bury the thoughts of the critic in the open.

Strap them to a legal definition of thought

And take away the words they’ve spoken.

 

Have they forgotten?

 

It is the original law of this country 

To let us speak as we wish to speak

But generation after generation

Attempts to make the defenders of this law seem weak. 

 

Preaching over society with their own critical vomit.

Yet telling others that they can’t share.

All the while brewing up distance and separation

Among the people, widening a political, personal tare.
