Illusions


Freedom:
Just because you can
walk to your neighbor's
for coffee
or take the kids
to Mt. Rushmore
can mean you are
wearing shackles

Choice:
Just because you can
go to the polls
does not mean
you have the right
to choose

Truth:
Just because you go
to church
can mean
you are
hearing a lie

Leadership:
Just because you
voted for your representatives
does not mean
your whisper in their ear
is heard louder
than the person
with a bigger checkbook

War:
Just because your nation
uses its power
does not mean
that children will be saved
or that the outcome
was not pre-arranged
