Brand Stand:

Life, Liberty and

Pursuit of Happiness grand

If followed in land

Style / type: 
Structured: Eastern
Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
Ideals lost when separated by I (ego) and deals (big business) have a detrimental impact on the ability of leading lights to be moral compasses to others.
Editing stage: 


Life, Liberty and
Pursuit of Happiness grand
was followed till banned
In your dread of dictators
you made class traitors
job creators all dictators
no rights for waiters
every financier a dictator
no such thing as liberty
every private employer a dictator
wage slave captivity
workers at their mercy
no public responsibility
this defeat of all government,
betrays all class empowerment
you have set up a monstrous idol in bronze
which you call Liberty
which symbolises massive cons
keeping workers from activity
in a nationwide mental illness,
Post Macarthyist Paranoia Disorder
Most simply cannot see
so traumatised by the Macarthyism witch-hunts
it so destroyed their belief in a land of liberty
that the cognitive dissonance caused
generational psychic scarring
and eternal addiction to warring.
