Ode to Tyranny

Oh Tyranny,
That restraint upon my will,
That thief of my independence
With its overreaching hand
That steals me from my residence.

Oh Tyranny,
Solemn while in sleep,
Silencer of expression.
Afraid when awake,
Human’s nature’s suppression.

Oh Tyranny,
Conformity to their will,
To the chain of unity
In the cold caged crowd
That wears the aged crown.

Break, break,
Shatter the flow.
Oh tyranny
I rid you away.
May the freedom of my words
Be the freedom of my world.

Free, free!
I sing off-beat,
Off-key,
I walk, I run, I sprint
But never march
To the drummer’s beat,
The director’s tune,
The conductor’s baton,
I fly, fly on wings of freedom
Through the open air
Of my domain.
Breath, breath
The fresh air of liberty.
Sing, sing!
My freedom song is sung
As I dance in the open air
By the light of the shining sun!
