Liberty Weeps

Liberty weeps

As disharmony seeps

Down to her very core

Leaving nothing in its wake

.

What have you done to our sweet lady Liberty?

Ripped out her soul, left her to die in misery

Used her name to fuel your words of disunity

Claimed she’s on the side of hate and hostility

.

Liberty weeps

As intolerance creeps

Into every pore

Every fibre of her being

.

What have you done to our sweet lady Liberty?

Proclaimed yourself her prophet in your false liturgy

Preaching sermons formed of lies and toxicity

As though you hold some semblance of divinity

.

Liberty weeps

Consumed as she sleeps

The violence and hate

Feast on the remnants of her dreams

.

Her torch to used to light the way

Guiding us through our every day

But you’ve gone put out the flame

And tried to lead us all astray

.

Liberty weeps

As disharmony seeps

And intolerance creeps

Into her every pore

Down to her very core

Consumes as she sleeps

The remnants of her dreams

.
