Give Me Liberty, or Give Me Death

(A Poem for the American Fascists Posing as Patriots, By Elmo)

I will not give you my freedom because
you are scared...
You cannot use my name to wage
wars undeclared.
You cannot take my values to claim
as your own...
And then run to evil like a dog
to a bone.

I will not give you solace for the
pity you seek...
For unlike me you are very,
very weak.
You will not see the day where your
side has won...
For you must be many, while I am
just one.

You can spread propaganda, get the
masses to agree...
But try as you might, you will
never own me.
For I am the echo of freedom's
Neither silenced by agenda, nor the
rule of law.

You can never defeat me, let me
tell you why...
For I am the land, the sea, and
the sky.
I am the mountain's high and the
valley's low...
I am that which is freedom's

I am the one who lifts the
To reveal your lies and damn them
to hell.
I am the answer to why you
are scared...
I am the essence of your worst

For I am freedom...

I am America.
