Something I Don't Understand

We used to force feed suffragists
And what they did may have been wrong
Perhaps they never had the right
To throw themselves upon a sword
And toss a pen out to the crowd
But I don't believe in liberty
In a place where we are forced alive

"Long live death!"
They used to scream
I saw it in a painting
Severed head and bloody mouth
"Long live the revolution!"
We kill for what we think is right
We hold the heads of those we hate
Just above the water

This is a VERY strong poem with very strong emotions. I love it.
