I find it quite honestly dismaying
How few of us know our civil rights.
For history tells us people died for them,
People who never wavered in the fight.
But now our rights are being jeopardized,
Threatened by those who pray for a civil war,
Who don’t seem to understand what is meant
By freedom of speech on this American shore.
Kneeling against injustice has been protected
Speech for everyone, including you and me.
So, I do not envy those who act goofy and mad
When one exercises their rights patriotically.
