I wonder sometimes
Is self expression really what it is?
When i express a point of view different than yours
Do you have the right to censure me?
After all these ideas amount to opinions
So why would you sanction me
You have the right
You have the might
What about political freedom?
We are not of the animal kingdom.
Put up the rules so we know
That we are not allowed to write
anything critical of certain subjects
Or have a different opinion on certain matters.
And then remove your censorship board
because we are censorship bored.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
In my country writing a piece critical of the ruling class is like treason. For a poet thats a hard life sentence.
