EXERCISING MY RITES/ RIGHTS

Reaching the age
Of majority & consent
It happened long past…
But as I look back
I wonder what it
Really meant…

In the Age of Aquarius
Was love free & easy?
It seems like hype
Should I feel gypped…
With love more
Open now…by far?

The rite of passage
Meant different things…
For some the right
To exercise the vote…but
Even that’s debatable…
Look where we are now

We live now in an age
Where so-called patriots
Wrapped in the flag
Seek to deny those who
See things differently…
Their rights trump all?

Any way you slice it…
That’s just wrong…right?
Where are MY rights?
