LEMONADE STAND



Freedom is a word
That has its essence within it

Slavery is a word
That hasn't Freedom within it

Here I am
Come and get me
Or come at me
One in the same

Perspective

Lit by the sea
Doused by the sun
Not alone, not empty
One
The biggest number
The only number
One

The moon is nearing full
The howl getting closer
Coming around
Park bench-

(Hey! Over here! It's Me!)

The moon rising with the sky
Sky of stars
Shooting car
Far far far away
Strawberry lemonade
Water's free
Lemon's too
Sugar'll cost ya
Where ya going?

(Home! Only made a quarter! One measly quarter!)

It's not about how much
It's about the joy of lemonade
No joy unless you give it away
Freedom
Still, sugar is costly

(Not as costly as sorrow or pride or hate or tomorrow.)

Lemonade stand

RED SOUND Head-Line Verse

DALLAS SHOOTING, SUSPECT UPSET AT WHITE PEOPLE...
Red's the sound of murder
Blue's the sound of mourning
Yellow, pinstriped cowardice
Tapping toes, a distraction
Rage, the news attraction
Pure gold, rating's satisfaction The sound of murder is red
Blue's next ~ HATE CRIME REPORTS SURGE IN BRITAIN... "Hate is caused by Fear
Fear is caused by Hate
They feed off one another
End both, end all Wars.
Cease both, Heaven arises." Hate, are you Fear's second cousin? (First cousin.) Are you two close? (BFF's!) ~ ISIS CLAIMS 40 LIVES AT SHIITE SHRINE...
How many more are to be lifted before We rise up? (We need rise up just to get a headcount of those murdered.) It would be far too painful, sorrow comes from the actions of the murderer, the victims draw upon our grief...

THE RISING OF FREEDOM

The rising began and begins from deep within our being, then it brings the collective to an agreement; freedom is free. We are to follow its example and free ourselves from being a slave to “things”. To truly be free, We must agree that freedom is truly for the whole of humankind, for if one is enslaved, so shall We all be…
