Liberal

I want to live
in a god-less
world

A place where
common-sense
and logic
triumph over
greed
insecurity
fear
and hate

A world that
puts humans
above corporations
where government
works in the interests
of the people,
all the people,
instead of against them

I want to live
in a world
where the truth
is a good thing
where knowledge
outweighs ignorance

Because frankly
I’m tired of hearing
these fantasies rooted
in gross unrealities
of heaven and hell

And I don’t think
it’s possible to move
to a better world
without forsaking
these fallacies of
nationalism
patriotism
and worst of all
religion

You can attack
me all you want
but the truth
will bear out

(D. James)
