Patriot's Pen!

Let them wail and bleat and shill for oppression,
clever antagonists, dichotomous insurrectionists
severe liberties civil,
admonish liberty drivel
and dagger the spokes by which it swivels.

How their words fall taciturn,
their grudge reticent thus bedraggled,
to upturn even the diffident heart
and accurse the dissident
by wrecking their part.

Importuning patriotism to the bindery of calculated literature,
bereavement lost at the beseecher’s whim,
so is lost the patriot’s pen.

Peace and Love always.

Individualism-
To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
