Common Sense

common sense paine

The news lately is full of terror and fear,

Of all the things, we hold dear.

Freedom, equality are most rare

and threatened by evil laid bare.

We need protection that is for sure

But in order for our freedom to endure

We need to also hold our heads up high

Let the fear go by.

No county in my mind is so free

As ours continues to be.

Let common sense guide us

Ignorance not divide us.

For those that threaten free people,

Tear down each library and church steeple

Are the enemy not our countrymen.

Stand up all both men and women.

Freedom will burn and fade,

The caliphate made,

Using our own fear,

Of losing that we hold dear.

For to live without being free

Is no way to be.

Live your life, stand up proud

For the freedoms we are allowed

Are worth being brave

If our very souls we save.
