Keeping Freedom Alive

It’s a comedy of errors…
  the clowns and actors inside

When for two millennia,
  they served to amuse and abide

The patriots and righteous
  once made all the laws

But now the Halls of Congress
  by their presence are flawed

Through political correctness,
  the blind pretend that they see

With our future in peril,
  they laugh at our pleas

A carnival sideshow
  they make of the truth

As the press and the movies
  back up what’s uncouth

They lie in our face
  with the darkest of plans

Their excuses in concert
  now leading the band

Like the rats in the cellar
  and the bats in the barn

To the hills we must drive them
  where they can do no more harm

And the power repositioned
  among the brave and the wise

Who care first for their country
  —keeping freedom alive

(Villanova Pennsylvania: July, 2018)
