Land of the Free?

Alas, the dream of freedom fades
You scoff and think I overstate
but then, some “freedoms” condone hate
our freedoms come in different shades
some, for others, make barricades
man marries man? Their “free” says “no”
can you not see how this is so?
“what the hell have you got to lose?”
I say plenty – your right to choose
don’t say next year you didn’t know.


Special Request:

I am looking to expand my reach and am reaching a WordPress “follower” milestone.

If you read something of mine that resonates with you (for any reason at all), please share the link on your various social media accounts, reblog, etc.

You can either share the link of the specific poem, blog entry, vlog entry, or you can share the main page of my website –

You can also follow or friend me on any of my other various outlets (warning – some are less “guarded” in thoughts and feelings than others)

My social media channels are:

Twitter: @bkohns
Instagram: benkohns
YouTube: Defying Atrophy

I appreciate your help, and thanks for allowing the shameless self-promtion!
