Libertarium

By Odysseus

The reaper comes for us all,
And is feared by most,
But I welcome that eternal sleep,
For I grow weary of life.

I am already dead,
One who has nothing to lose,
What keeps me going?
I know not

Bar that cause,
To strive for liberty,
A noble deed can yet be performed,
Before I depart from this earth.

That idea
That single thought
At the back of my head
Telling me to carry on

To pick up the hammer of anarchy,
And smash the chains that confine me,
So I can walk down that road,
To liberty, equality and fraternity.

The death of liberty

By Anton

A soldier lies under a foreign sky
While back at home a politician on the right
Proclaims ‘for there country they did die’
The soldiers death becomes another banner under which to fight

The shovel of counter terrorism piles dirt upon the box
The nation’s flag covers the bone
As the war propaganda secretly mocks
Liberty is engraved on the stone
