Poetry: “Liberty bells”

Something tying into the topic yesterday…Somewhat, anyway.

***~***~***~***

Liberty bells

Liberty bells are ringing
They sound for the privileged
For those who always got it all
For those who can pay for it

Liberty bells are sounding
They ring out for the ruling class
The ones who know the system
And how to make it work for them

Liberty bells are pealing
They call out for the ones with means
The men who’ve always ruled the world
It is they who forged that bell

Liberty bells are booming
But not for the bottom rung
The poor and black and pushed around
No, this liberty’s not for them
