FREE SPEECH

They died that we can freely talk,
They gave their lives that we be heard
Let not the dove become a hawk
That freedom becomes absurd

Sit not upon a biased chair
That he who differs is not condemned
That people living everywhere
Share the right to condescend

Let not the eye of purpose dim
Nor memory lose a thought
Let us not falter at the rim
For this we died and fought.
