Free speech and lies

if the mouth is telling lies
the whole body will have to support the mouth

if the government is telling lies
the whole system will have to support it

those being lied to will suffer as much
as those being lied about

is discipline is the enemy
of free speech
is free speech is the enemy
of discipline
permission to speak freely sir

the higher up you go
the more discipline
hampers free speech

until you reach the very top
and its god is there
like an oasis in the desert
beneficent
cross sworded
promising
wearing a coat of sticky notes
his face
like the framework of a cathedral
he understands
how far you have travelled
to find justice
after all
it was he
who put the whole dam system
in place

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
