Free Speech

Legislators tell us that free speech is a constitutional right of every citizen,
Yet they fight with one accord against the people who speak the truth
Politicians become so agitated when someone exposes their evil plots
They try to silence the persons who speak out against injustice and corruption
Furthermore, they even violate the rights that they say the citizens have
.

According to the education that we have received, what is free speech?
Free speech is the right to publicly express any views without censorship or restraint
This means that we can freely agree or disagree with anyone or anything
We have the right to say whom or what we like or dislike without persecution
Anything other than this is not free speech; it is a false claim and a deceptive law

This poem is about: 
Me
My family
My community
My country
Our world
