Free Speech (Poem) Of Democracy by Vendetta

Good evening London,
allow me to apologize
I do, like many of you, appreciate the comfort of the everyday routine
the security of the familiar, the tranquility of reputation.
I enjoy them as much as any bloke.
But in the spirit of commemoration...

Whereby important events of the past
usually associated with someone's death
or the end of some awful, bloody struggle
are celebrated with a nice holiday

I thought we could mark this November the 5th
a day that is, sadly, no longer remembered
by taking some time out of our daily lives to sit down
and have a little chat.

There are of course, those who do not want us to speak.
Even now, orders are being shouted into telephones
and men with guns will soon be on their way
Why? Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation

words will always retain their power.
Words offer the means to meaning
and, for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth.

And the truth is
there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn't there?

Cruelty and injustice,
intolerance and oppression.

And where once you had the freedom to object
to think and speak as you saw fit
you now have cencors and surveillance coercing your conformity
and soliciting submission.

How did this happen? Who's to blame?
Certainly there are those who are more responsible than others.
And they will be held accountable.
But again, truth to be told,
if you're looking for the guilty
you need only look into a mirror.

I know why you did it.
I know you were afraid.
Who wouldn't be?

War...
Terror...
Disease...

There were a myriad of problems which conspired
to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense.
Fear got the best of you.
And in your panic, you turn to the now High Chancellor Adam Sutler.

He promise you order,
He promise you peace,

and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.
Last night, I sought to end that silence.
Last night, I destroyed the Old Bailey
to remind this country of what it has forgotten.
More than 400 years ago, a great citizen wished to imbed the 5th of November
forever in our memory.
His hope was to remind the world that fairness, justice dan freedom are more than words.
They are perspectives.
So if you've seen nothing
if crimes of this government remain unkwown to you
then i would suggest that you allow the 5th of November to pass unmarked.

But if you see what i see, if you feel as i feel, and if you would seek as i seek
then i ask you to stand beside me, one year from tonight
outside the gates of Parliament.
And together, we shall give them a 5th of November
that shall never, ever be forgot!
