When Selling Freedom

We choose an alibi to suggest our lot in life,

I decidedly drove my car to the local market

to find a new source of energy, to end the strife,

I guess I didn’t realize the stores were all kept

stocked, quite fresh really, the latest healthy foods

the sort you know we all thought – try it once fool

I never was able to find my way beyond the lanes

when suddenly ‘Happy Xmas’ sounded in my brain,

I pulled my car over to listen to his words, his cries,

my eyes filled with tears to hear the little child’s wise

I knew my world had changed overnight with a bullet
