The Great Censorship

Oh how it starts...I feel sorry for the world as a whole...Internet connection...wait there's a delay in the link up,
There it goes...working working let's find anything of interest...clever trick you have...wait...the website doesn't exist,
I wonder why...it's Facebook...everyone can connect...china says no...only on every other day...the insanity,
Ok ok something else...let's find other links to another website...leasehold while they reconnect you...hours later nothing.

Please call your representative...anti-censorship law we need to relay...don't let the censorship...creative skills banished,
No culture...absolutely no culture but propaganda yes of course...let there be videos of war and guns,
Paintings...artwork...no there can no longer be that they say...might be an uprising...just let us culturally expand,
The knife has already started to cut the strong to the censorship law...why let them do it...we can stop this I know.

Read between the lines and call your state...let the phones ring in effortless appeal to such a substandard law to discriminate us all,
If waiting is in such regard...then freedom of every future generation will halt in the mud of government control of everything,
I do not hate capitalism...nor do I have socialism...but a dictatorship and censorship standards should be to blame,
Absolutism in it's grimy disregard to freedom of information for cultural integrity...tampered waves of Internet frequencies.

Great hayrides they try to persuade us...let's do recreational activities while we make HTML code differences...JavaScript...IFs...Ands...But If...does it make a change...don't let this happen,
Calls can be made...tabletop chess games where they can think ten steps ahead of you...average citizen...no don't let it happen,
Think of the loss of paintings...of creative freedom...of basic principles of human needs and wants,
Takefor granted they will change it...before our very eyes...representative please take note and make a difference...declare us free from the great censorship please.

Great subject.. Wish we could be free of censorship... "they" tease us by saying we have freedom of speech, and expression.. as long as it's by someone else's standards..

That is so right, I wanted to publish this for others to feel the need for creative arts to remain free.

Censorship is next door to Dictatorship.

However, I do not want my little nieces hearing, reading, or watching trash.

So, Censorship can be a two headed elephant with no tail.

Since I join Twitter, about 20 women/young girls have tried to follow me,and their language is very sexual, and in bad taste—and believe me I was shocked.

I believe they think I am a man since I put Sweetie Angel’s photo on my profile, he is my Pomeranian.

It was really bad language—and sometimes before I can block them, Twitter cancelled their account. They are soliciting online---amazing—I suppose I live in a bubble most of the time.

I like good taste in everything and everyone I deal with, and it is my choice if I do not watch, read, or listen to what I consider in appropriate, but it is also, others right to do so as they wish. I believe that we still have that right.

Thanks,

Bobbi

Well I'm glad you can appreciate this poem in all it's entirety. It is very true that some people do place themselves in the firing line with some of their wording and remarks, but I believe it simply is that depending on what side of the line someone stands on, it is still an opinion. Censorship shouldn't be found in contempt, nor should it be punished. Everyone has their opinions, and while their is still a human walking on this earth, opinions will be made, and speeches will be heard, whether it's applauding or booing.
