freedom is

being a good citizen

being kind and considerate

and thoughts of your neighbor

in every sense of the idea

is doing an active bit

in king and country

federal county

state

city

civic

exercise

that franchise

that far too many souls

sacrificed

upon an altar

lest we falter

and fail

to pass the test

and let evil and malice

arrest our growths!
