No,
Freedom of speech.
Say what you want,
with a teacher, cop, mom,
breathing down your neck.
Don’t say this.
Don’t say that.
Don’t say,
scream.

No,
Freedom of petition.
Go ahead with you signs and chants,
but don’t chant too loud,
don’t hold your signs too high.
You’ll never know when they’ll release the dogs.

No,
Freedom of religion.
Catholic, Hindu, Muslim.
A country of many religions.
But if one doesn’t like who you love,
Say goodbye to “till death do us part.”

No,
Freedom of press.
It seems the news can say anything,
but I get confused.
They can talk about anything,
So why do I know what Paris wore to Diddy’s party?
