Freedom Pentameter for America
I hear it often said that soldiers die
for my right to speech and not to make rich
companies more money. So I posit
that I must get busy with my freedom
and express it at every chance I get.
For isn’t my duty to write poems
all night and day? However, there are some
who do not agree I should enjoy free
discourse, democracy, and civil rights.
Yet, the same people still express pro-war
sentiments and they angrily bemoan
the activist, archivist, and artist.
So, what’s the deal? Do we have freedom
or not for scribing in pentameter?
