Stop Being Hypocritical About Freedom Or Liberty

Stop it! Quit being hypocritical about freedom

What type or what kind that you are talking about?

Be serious! Keep on talking about freedom

Until you drive me to boredom

Until I am strong enough to eat a live trout

Keep on yelling freedom, freedom

Until you lose your kingdom

In Galatians 5:1, 13-15: we found these words, not in error

“You shall love as yourself your neighbor”

“But through love become slaves to one another”

“If, however, you bite and devour one another,

Take care that you are not consumed by one another”

Go read the Bible yourselves, ‘because we are free’

We are brothers and sisters, we should love one another

Yes, Christ died for our freedom, for our liberty

We want freedom in America

We want freedom in Cuba

We want freedom in Columbia

We want freedom in Haiti

Which is poor because of exploitation

Corruption, violence, hatred, pollution

Lies, extortion, racism, theft, distortion

Misery, slavery, crimes and discrimination

Stop, stop being hypocritical about freedom

Let’s finish elaborating and talking about freedom

Before alluding to or commenting on democracy

Which is more twisted, complex, convoluted or mazy

Big brother is supposed to protect the little one

In this world, we should fight for freedom for everyone

For the rich, the poor, the underprivileged and the elderly

The strong must protect the weak one. Oh! Miss Liberty

Stands for something noble and divine for all

“For freedom Christ has set us free”, so we can walk tall

So we can think freely

So we can wink freely

So we can talk freely

So we can walk freely

So we can laugh freely

So we can clap freely

So we can write freely

So we can chat freely

While respecting each other

And protecting one another

Oh! Freedom, Freedom. Too many humans have senselessly

And falsely die in your name. Oh! Freedom. Oh! Liberty.
