is a storm a brewing; I can feel it in the air.
by boarding windows, the livestock put inside.
I do not prepare myself, for storms unannounced,
will be the price, when apathy, shortsighted.
little restriction here, and a just a bit more there;
claim it’s all for safety’s sake, as our liberties decrease.
security is commonplace, as we look at those without,
countries yearn for freedom, as ours we take for granted.
thank our stars, white on blue, we thank the thirteen strips,
giving freedom to us now, to live our lives so free.
is a storm a brewing, the signs are clearly seen;
devastation has begun, as our liberties decrease.
crises requires of us, our security we must secure,
has its own restrictions; this is not of which I speak.
own selfish desires… without thought of premise set,
Constitution, our rights spelled out, is being set aside.
is being made, to make you feel good,
good is fine and well, but liberty is put at risk.
those who understand… frustration… unrest is building,
laws are made to socialize, against the founders’ wish.
is a storm a brewing, in your apathy, deny,
those eyes that you may see, the decrement of liberty.
claim for safety or the children, we must restrict our guns,
keep and bear, restrain, as once the German Nazis.
of property rights, a bold rebuff of the founders,
regulation our government, captures from us our land.
votes, appease the few, as we squander away our rights;
interests deny the rights, of premise set for others.
right to inherit with tax restricts, again your father’s labor;
Manifesto’ of Karl Marx, calls to remove that right.
right lost for the right of another builds the weather front,
storm is coming, wake up, prepare, the worse is yet to come.
is a fine precept, if first premise held sacred,
cornerstone must first prevail, before the people’s wish.
becomes anarchy, if firm foundations lack,
Constitution must be upheld, to save this country great.
have the right to life… and liberty with… responsibility,
pursue happiness, without restricting others.
freedom is simply, consideration for each other,
does not mean… freedom, to do all we wish to do.
must prepare, defend our rights, the winds are on us now,
of the flag symbolic, has begun to show some tatter.
and Communications, has built our economy,
of mobility, constrains free progress growth.
basic safety, the government takes the right,
build power unto itself, in restricting our basic rights.
children, the future, being taught wrong, that wrong is right,
to give the premise needed, to keep this country great.
to show allegiance, exhibit your country pride,
not let it stop right there, your responsibility display.
do not dare to look ahead, in fear of storms to come,
live our lives and not prepare, for the storm that is a brewing.
