Freedom, Or Slavery! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

what we face...
is the ignorance of the gun!
the censor's immoral judgements,

the greed that takes
at the expense of need.
the patriotic drunkenness

that justifies without thought.
the violent fear that brutalizes
different skin color, different views!

the stink of the power
that crushes the voices
of our own children....

the final choice....
freedom, or slavery!
