Anthony W. Pahl


It is a price some know by experience,
a price others learn by default;
others are doomed never to know
but have the freedom to revolt.

Some have paid the full price,
some have seen the wounds;
still others protest involvement
and wave the banner of doom.

There are those who willing to give all,
there are others who tender support;
there are unfortunately others,
who think freedom is a sport.

There are those who fight for freedom,
there are those who pray and help;
but those who protest the loudest
have bought freedom off the shelf!
