[Day 5, Writing 101-PoetryFreedom]
Do we have Freedom?
Oh yes, in theory we all have our guaranteed freedom
even if we can’t count on all things when we need them.
Some have to fret that they can’t pay the rent;
and regarding their children–how to feed them?
Freedom of Speech: But of course!
Say anything at all–there’s no limitations.
No problems of saying just what we think or how we feel
when the words in a dictionary all will be perfect….
as long as the vocabulary is politically correct!
Cuss at the police? Why not? Just be careful
to be sure there are plenty of witnesses
that will swear the speech is respectful.
Remember well what we learned from our mothers–
the fact remains that Some of Us are more free than others.
Free to Bare Arms: Bare even more of our girlish charms!
decency is optional for comely young (and not so young) Lasses.
But beware: Laddies with wandering eyes, staring is frowned on…
or even forbidden, regardless of what is on display–
so don’t take a chance–it’s far better to look the other way!
