Book Burning

Post by Crooklyn » Wed Sep 15, 2010 12:23 pm

They did this to us
He said
She said
Them and their damned book
Look!
The pain they caused
The lives they took
He said
She said
See!
It's black and white
A book of blood
Hate and spite
Ignite!
Burn it! Burn the page!
Rid us of this blight!
Unite!
Patriots good
Countrymen right!
Burn it!
For we hold these
Truths!
To be self-evident

You can burn books but you can't destroy ideas. Tolerance is the only true religion.
