Treasure Island

Roxanne Dubarry

(October 4,1954 / Seattle, Washington)

Freedom Is Not Free


No, Freedom is not Free,
Even in the, 'Land of
The Free and The Home
Of the Brave.'

When they take
Away Prayer in School,
Refuse to follow the
Golden Rule,
And Kick
Out Jesus Christ,
The Enemies of
Freedom are far from nice.

When the Ten Commandments
Are vanished from the public square,
The Enemies of Freedom
Do not Believe in playing fair.

When Military Chaplans
Are Censured in their
Prayers, is there anybody
Out there who truly cares?

When people are unjustly
imprissioned for their
relgious beliefs,
The enemies of Freedom
Do not care if loved
Ones weep!

When the IRS
Targets you
For your policts and beliefss,
Do not the Stars and Strips
Freely bleed!

We the Nation that defends
The Basic Freedoms on
Middle Eastrn Lands,
Deprieve our citzens
Of the Christian
And Jewish brotherhood
Of Man and Woman!

Verily, Verily the
Enemies of Freedom
Are every where!
Love in Christ Jesus!

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
