The Brown Paper Bag of Freedom

The Brown Paper Bag of Freedom. 

-Aaron Thomas
The Capitol should have a curtain.

And God could sit in the front row behind China.

Hate is written in road signs. Freedom is a word by men who own it.
Don’t tell your child the truth. They have to memorize their facts. Circle the free country.
Circle the free country!
History has to be taught so we don’t repeat our mistakes.
His Story has to be taught so we don’t repeat our mistakes.
There’s “Freedom of Speech”. But we don’t listen.
They’re too busy using that new convenient technology.
Chains that can be custom fitted, mounted with an array of colors, shapes and designs.
We have to cut down forests to tell people it’s bad to cut down the forests.
They’ll have us fighting over free t-shirts, while stealing the last bit of oxygen.
And when we die, at least, we’ll be remembered for how they wrote us.
“He was free.”
He is free. No longer fulled.
