tell me of your hatred singing words
that saddens hope with a heart filled with bile
pumping through veins held at will
driving you mad
insane.

freedom
a word overly used
by greedy politicians
there is no such thing
in a world dominated by their
corporations.

tell me of your hatred in a land of free
when we are all bound by an invisible chain
that rattles in our heads and hangs around our heels
tripping, fumbling
trying to make ends meat.

freedom
a word overly used
by greedy politicians
there is no such thing
in a world dominated by their
corporations.

tell me of your hatred when a church discriminates
using religion at casting stones telling us how to think
preaching they are right and others are wrong
all in His name but isn’t He the same
in all the universe?

freedom
a word overly used
by greedy politicians
there is no such thing
in a world dominated by their
corporations.

tell me of your hatred when equality is based on need
when and how, who and why
to fill the gaps at keeping quiet
those who stand to defend the rights
of every man, woman and child.

freedom
a word overly used
by greedy politicians
there is no such thing
in a world dominated by their
corporations.
