    Self Expression Costs

    Haven't you noticed how,
    Self expression has a price,
    Whether it be in reputation,
    Or the consequences for a life?
    There's certainly no way,
    You get to say your piece for free,
    Without it being badly twisted,
    In propaganda's blame machines,
    I could write of scented roses,
    But the smell of false opinion,
    Would outgrow any other,
    In a cataclysmic schism,
    So, no wonder we keep tight lipped,
    Only hinting at the truth,
    Of how you're surely judged,
    Before there's one ounce of proof.
