Hey, look here I'm singing to this beat.Not standing on my feet.Wish I

could eat some beets.And the army's starting a new fleet.And these

days it's not safe to eat.Better watch what you drink.Don't sip on

that lean.Hold off on the weed.Even if your in the time of need.You

better just call me.For I don't judge you for who you wanna be.We can

both kick it and you dont need drugs.To have fun.Watchout you might

end up on the rug.Only you can promise me.That you'll save me some

buns.I'm hungry.Waiting for my burger.Trying not to be angry.I know it

won't take me further.To get out in the day.And not have my peace.I

just wanna get down on my knees.And ask to be released.Chain off my

neck and hope people get freed right after me.

The thought of finally being free is what made this poem happen. In this time and age. Freedom is being ripped out from under us and we don't even know it. I want it back. Do you?

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
