Free Speech…Poetry by Hussein Ali Hill-Johnson

Free Speech

Free speech is like using a double edge razor blade
my favorites are Wilkinson made

Being careful when you use it is the trick
because yourself you don’t want to nick

If you do, I hope its a minor cut
and doesn’t  require a stitches to shut

Remember there is a thin line between love and hate
or a self-aggrandizing monologue and a debate

Finally, it’s like playing basketball on a hard wood floor
the goal is to win, not to just run up the score
