So This... “ Cancel Culture “...
Now Seems To Be Structured To RESTRICT Numbers...
And Now Be The CONDUCTOR... !!!
of What Folks Say And What Gets Played...

Via TV Or Stage And WHO Gets Paid...
As If THEY Are Some SPECIAL Class...
Who Know How Far Free Speech Should Go... !?!
But It Seems As Though They’re A Little LATE... !!!
Where EXACTLY Were They When The... KKK...
Used To Murder Slaves Just Because of Their Race... !!!

... " Oh, Because These Days, Things Have REALLY Changed... "

Are These People INSANE And NOT Using Their Brains... ?!?
Because We STILL Have SLAVES And Heads Who CLEARLY Want To DICTATE...
Are They Cancelling THEM ... Or Doing What THEY SAY... !?!
Or Just Causing PROBLEMS Over Gender And Race... ?!?
Well Some It Now Seems Who’ve Made BIG MONEY... !!!
Are UNCOMFORTABLE With Them... CANCELLING... !!!
When It Comes To Free Speech...
And Indeed The Arts Because of Policies...
That Seem To STINK Like FARTS... !!!
Have They Cancelled BOMBS Or RACIST Sitcoms...
Oh Yes NOW They Have AFTER These Shows Have...
Made PLENTY of CASH And Been Shown Across Lands...

.......................... INTERNATIONALLY .......................... !!!
On TV’s AND Indeed BIG SCREENS REPEATEDLY For The World To See...
So Where Have They Been BEFORE Gender Themes...
And INEQUALITIES Became The Very Fabric of SOCIETIES... ?!?
Where APPARENTLY EVERYBODY Was FREE To Be Who They Wanna Be...
Well That’s A FALLACY... That’s NOT REALITY Just Like PIPE DREAMS... !!!
Oh But SUDDENLY These New CANCEL POLICE...
Are CANCELLING... And Now DAMAGING... !!!
The Careers of Those Who WON’T Be Controlled... !!!
Like Those Who Speak What They Want... FREELY... !!!
So They Can CANCEL ME Cos That’s How I NOW BE... !!!
NOT Some HUMAN SHEEP For Them To Shepherd And Keep...
In Some PENITENTIARY Just Because of Free Speech...
That DOESN’T Tread...................... “ Lightly “ ...................

Cos’ I ALREADY KNOW How... CANCELLING Goes... !!!
Because It’s Really Not New It’s What Censors Do... !!!
But Here’s Some TRUTH To UPSET Their Crews... !!!
It’s One Rule For THEM But NOT The Same For You... !!!
If You’re NOT ONE Who’ll Keep Your Mouth SHUT To APPEASE These Teams...
Who Now Want TOTAL CONTROL... !!!
That’s Just The Way That The Story Now Goes...
NO Bambi Or THUMPER To Be Some Foot Drummer... !!!

Just A Breed of Vultures Now Willing To PUNCTURE Careers Like BAD Plumbers... !!!
Whose Force Has A Cause Now Trying To ENFORCE..
What Should Be Put ASUNDER... This TRULY RIDICULOUS... !!!
