we know it best
by its reverse-
when we are caged
beneath the will of others
when a line is crossed
and we will not stand for tyrannies
whether it be male,female,animal ,vegetable or children
the domination of one over others-domestic,national or inter-
is dictatorship short and simple.Folk rise up
when their human rights are trampled-
when they cannot speak freely,nor assemble
There are many tyrannies and so few freedoms
we recognize each and every one of them.
Bills of Rights and Constitutions,Magna Cartas and United Nations
all list (but cannot enforce)civilization.
For we are defined best by our best behavior-
when we respect indigenous,Nature,women,children and each other
Freedom is not a difficult concept to define
to live it is much harder.It means we must live
equally well-with ourselves and each other...
