Freedom And Responsibility - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

With freedom comes responsibility
And Freedom of Speech has so many

We cannot just throw every verb and pronoun
All adverbs and adjectives just spread around

We cannot just say what we want to say
Whatever the place, the reason, or the way

And position all the more entails proper decorum
As we reproduce in words from where we came from.

Therefore those who write and demand such freedoms
Choose particular sites that proliferate such norms,

And learn to respect the rules of engagement
On this site of Poemhunter and abide in agreement.
