Unite For Lady Liberty

Unite For Lady Liberty

Why did we fight to set people free
sacrificing a hundred thousand lives
in civil war between our united states
if honest people are denied any right
because their skin is darker than white
unless we all unite for Lady Liberty.

Why did we fight to set people free
so men and women with honesty
may pursue happiness in true liberty
if women are not allowed a choice
to bear a child inside her womb or not
unless we all unite for Lady Liberty.

Why did we fight to set people free
if teen girls who run away from home
are forced to sell their bodies for cash
by men who beat them in impotent rage
if they try to escape from sex slavery
unless we all unite for Lady Liberty.

Why did we fight to set people free
smashing wall between church and state
if people of all religious creeds or none
cannot worship or not as they choose
and hold elected offices of authority
unless we all unite for Lady Liberty.

Why did we fight to set people free
sending soldiers to fight for democracy
to overthrow dictators in distant lands
if bankers with no rules to hinder hands
game stock market with cheating scams
unless we all unite for Lady Liberty.

Why did we fight to set people free
forming unions to secure worker rights
so every one may earn a decent wage
if speculators inflate prices of homes
and gamble mortgages to steal wealth
unless we all unite for Lady Liberty.

Why did we fight to set people free
marching to war at loud trumpet call
to break chains and free all humanity
if billions survive without kind security
hoping to build wasteland into paradise
unless we all unite for Lady Liberty.

Why did we fight to set people free
joining together all nations and creeds
if we fail to see we experience one reality
investigating science of true humanity
to share home planet in peaceful equality
unless we all unite for Lady Liberty.
