PERCEPTIONS

Freedom must be restricted in order to prevail;
Liberty is the fixing when freedom starts to fail.
Religious freedom allows the enemy to live in our land,
Increasing conspiracy, which is dangerous and underhand.
Democracy is the management of many peaceful states,
Manipulated by corporations who control the debates.
Soldiers are the fighters of the wars that must be won,
Not by the participants, by the manufacturers of the gun.
Destroy, rebuild, destroy, according to historic creeds
For it is always Mother Nature who in the end succeeds.
For man is a foolish creature filled with ambition and desire,
Who seeks to control the mountain; but can’t control its fire
Free people live in dungeons with frail window bars,
Thinking all will be resolved by fleeing beyond the distant stars.
