1st amendment

I find something alarming

I find something to be alarming

Are we as a country losing freedom of speech?

This to me is the ultimate in disarming

Is it just me or as a country are we

Allowing the altering of the first two amendments

Are we standing by helplessly as the powers to be 

Vote to make words and guns illegal?

I've written and released a poem years ago

Some were controversial for example my words are weapons

I've written seemingly so threatening

I was asked to keep quiet by a judge

Can turmoil be cleansed by smudge

Are oil and water destined to always end up sludge 

Rich is relative, so is poor

Once trust and confidence are broken 

Can they be truly restored?

I'm a disabled man questioning

The true intent of our government 

I wrote this because

I find something to be alarming

Author's Notes/Comments: 

How do you as the reader of this poem feel about the stability of our first two amendments

JAYFLYING

Birds don't worry
about jaywalking..
or jayflying

FLAWLESS

Because he rescued
an ox on the Sabbath
they called the
man lawless.
He chose
not earth law
but God's
design flawless
