Knock, Knock

By Bruce Clifford

Did you catch what they said on CNN
The same old story again and again
People are so uptight
Can't seem to get it right
The same old story again and again

Did you read what they said about the free
Freedom is in the agenda of each policy
Who cares which way they would go
If they're not living inside your home
The same old story, I guess that's how it goes

Knock, Knock
Who is there
Knock, Knock
Does anybody care
Oh, I can knock my head against the wall
Knock, Knock
But I am not ready for the fall

If we were really living in a world that's free
Would we be debating the effects like a political referee
Who's really free

Knock, Knock
Who is there
Knock, Knock
Does anybody care
Oh, I could knock you like a boxer to the other side of the ring
Knock, Knock
But in the end would this mean anything

Did you catch what they said on CNN
Two sides pushing out to the end
What is pure is just a state of mind
Negative justice is never kind
The same old story again and again

Comment: Bruce, people can get seasick, carsick and now, I think, news-sick. But I still agree with Thomas Jefferson that I'd prefer newspapers without government to government without newspapers. Ignorance is not bliss. The truth may not make you happy, but it will help keep you free. I am sickened by the number of citizens who do not know what's going on in the world and don't think their votes can make a difference. Voting is the alternative to brute force and misery. You won't prevail every time, but it's the only real game in town! God Bless America! Let's all pull together to keep it the land of the free.
