009 – Indivisible

Is the not the freedom we need
Each day our tolerance grows weaker
With our personal don’t tread on me cries

I want to be barefoot
So don’t step on my toes
But you cannot wear that shade of red
Because it offends me

We have become
Self-serving pc hypocrites
Isolating our fears
And feeding them to the masses
Who spoon down only what they wish to hear

The social media click bait maestros
Do not help either
They need ratings and commercial dollars
So why worry with the truth
When a twisted version of hate
Or outrage
Makes for a better golden parachute

It is a sad thought
But my white out mentality is on the rise
Others just like me
Are turning off the TVs
And tuning out those we no longer understand
Maybe it is our own version of this modern-day hypocrisy

My freedom
Has become a silent
Keep my opinion to myself
So I don’t have to deal with a perceived growing social idiocy

The sad truth of today is
While many live shackled lives
Craving even a hundredth of what lady liberty has given us
We are the spoiled toddlers
Of a young nation
Who do not know any better
