Catch me, catch me, if you can

Ive been banished to no mans land

Once I was welcome to drape about

Now, I’m somewhat exiled caught in drought


My stance is to be politically correct

Though my carriage holds truth in effect

To be deemed to rally on this virtue

Is frowned upon in full magnitude


There are those whom come to my aid

Demonstrating eagerly my cascade

Delivering their rights and supporting me

Are the heroes hostages to societies decrees


Times are a changing, we need to conform

Being politically correct is the method, the norm

Come and unite with us, let loose your freedom chains

We’ll conjure up humanities disdain


Zip your opinions, keep them to yourself

Summon only the words of greedy wealth

Dismiss the divided this will not mount

Release liberation of political paramount


When freedom of speech, life and liberties

Are imprisoned from societies autonomy

A desecration, a violation will dominate

Isolation and frustration will society create


Freedoms fall is ours to capture

Guarding us from commonalities rapture

Steering us to remain freedoms friends

Protecting us from being cloned over again
