This is for You

This is for You


I did not agree
and was not afraid to tell them so


I did not accept their lies
and told them so


I had to investigate
and so I did

down booby-trapped lanes
across chasms of love
through satiated sex,
in tax forms and novels,
TV shows and magazines,
quizzes and leg wax,
and found nothing new


found I did not agree


And I was right


For that freedom to be who you are
I fought


For that freedom of thought you now have
I fought


For that freedom of speech you enjoy
I fought


And for you, my one message through
time to come is this:


do not agree

unless it is real for you
