Sweet Liberty

  1. Snowy scales and cages brown.
  2. Hungry mouths, all chained and drowned.
  3. Plants at war don’t trickle down.
  4. Badges blue: the goons of crown.
  5. Lipsticked pigs in tux and gown
  6. Eat the trash, and own the town,
  7. Whip the slaves for buck and pound,
  8. Burn the trees, and suck the ground.
  9. Rainbow pins but silent sound.
  10. Fight the man, erase the brown.
  11. Stand together, gender bound
  12. Well, until the junk is found.
  13. Break the scales, the cages free.
  14. Feed the mouths, fished from the sea.
  15. Grow the plants, the bacon squee.
  16. Steal the whips, make masters plea,
  17. Flip their trough, and smash their peace.
  18. Guard the ground, protect the trees.
  19. Rainbows strong, together we
  20. Fight the man, the brown now see.
  21. Now to act, time’s passed for speech.
  22. Bring across and help them pee.
  23. Bell has rung, now class will flee.
  24. Time to take sweet liberty.
