THE BONDAGE OF FREEDOM

 

 

Woman into a man

Man out of a woman

The third gender

Proudly transgender.

 

Free to walk

Within a border,

Free to talk

No threat, no murder.

 

The quest for stardom

No privacy, but public,

Protestant or catholic

The bits of boredom.

 

Freedom of choice

You pay the price,

Golden, a voice

You cry thrice,

Though you are nice

You fall once,

Whether for a slice

Prejudice or injustice.

 

Freedom of religion

To sting like scorpion

Freedom of companion

Though you kill a champion.

 

Freedom of education

But race and association,

Freedom of naturization

Yet tribal with marginalization.

 

Freedom to live

Yet right to die

Freedom to believe

Yet impunity to lie.
