You have the right,
on the other hand,
the right has you.
The right to love,
sooner or later you get screwed.
Then some go get screwed again.
Basically love is good,
when truly understood.
But who understands,
many only demands.
Demands not met,
some lovers easily forget.

Our rights usually get us in trouble,
cause our problems to double.
Great American society,
many under do propriety.
Everyone wants to be right,
tell them they're wrong,
they almost want to fight.

Americans have too many rights,
which cause quite a few fights.
The right to protest,
the KKK makes a request.
Hate group displaying evil,
out pops a shovel.
Right into the head of a Klan,
by a protesting man.

Hate groups should never have a right,
they only insight.
But this is America,
land of the fee,
home of the tax spree.
Long as you pay,
you have a say.

Don't pay your taxes,
in comes the IRS axes.
You then have the right to run,
duck and dodge the police gun.
After you get shot,
you have a right to be buried,
in a graveyard plot.

G
