Can I release my words as a dove?
Upon wings of Freedom’s imagination,
Where one’s heart enjoys true Democracy,
Never fearing the true Judge of Man,
Who orchestrates from all of humanity.

Yet those Judges who imitate, as a false God,
Saying God hates all Liberals sinners of equality.
That religion is a corporate image to advertise,
Using it as a driving edge upon false war of truths
That profits means segregating on upper class values.

If our Lord, was an American lobbying politician,
He would not pick pocket for Five Star Treats,
But He would break bread with the street people,
Creating miracle smiles, not for personal wealth
But of a compassion shared in His love of all mankind.

He would say Amen, blessing us with His devotion
That no label is banned His rights in His domain.

Note: Along the Arizona and California border, I heard Senators Jon Kyl election adds. It used the Liberal word as a driving wedge of fear, much like the South in the Sixties, where people of Liberal persuasion were coming in to help register blacks for voting rights, and the extreme right wing conservative segregationists were outraged, saying the purity of their style of government must be preserved, at all costs. I came down South during the Vietnam Conflict (War) and was told not to talk in a Liberal free speech voice, or of Liberty values of our equality worded Constitution. I seen a “Colored Only” faded sign for the first time in a trashed former Southern Mississippi restroom, and God told me to become a Liberal in its dictionary term, and treat all Americans with respect, honor and dignity due all humanity.

Then the ultra right Bush bashing campaign started, to blame all Liberals, just as Germany blamed the Jews. This way they can use the tool of hate to gain more votes. Senator Kyl, I am sure your whitewashed values has thousand dollar suits and commercial ties, and the wealth of your heart is in green-blooded profits, while your indigent residents never get a personal visit of encouragement, please prove me wrong. Walk the talk of a Republican of Lincoln’s stature, now there was a Liberal liberator.
