What is Free?

Poetry By: TheSecretOfDawn

France has banned all religious clothing in schools, and the Muslim woman isn't allowed to wear her religious attire (the gown and face covering) yet they claim that it is fair. That it is a free country. Bullshit is what I say.

They think it is a democracy
But they don't even know the word
They think they are as free as birds
But they don't know what it even means to be free

Slaves of fashion
Slaves of Style
Slaves of Alcohol
Slaves of passion

They believe that they are free
But free isn't the word I'd use
Free is something more
I don't want to be a slave to shoes

Course, I get to vote
Yet, they dictate what I wear
No face covering, no clothing that is loose
Yet, no one even pretends to care
