Being Freed To Live Independently - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

They want the freedom to purchase guns.
But don't want a firing range to be built near them,
Feeling restrictions to them will come.

They want the criminals arrested,
And taken off the streets.
But a prison facility near them they don't want to see.

They want the government to step in,
And take care of their needs...
When the effects of Mother Nature,
Brings them to their knees.

They want what they want because they feel entitled.
But being freed to live independently,
No one seems to want to end their dependency.
