Freedom Of Thought

Five senses.
Sight, hearing,
smell, taste,
and touch.

But what of speech?
If we are to use our voice;
our precious
Freedom Of Speech -
we must be able
to speak our mind
without fear of censure.

It is this choice we had to make:
do we go headlong
and half cocked into a war
that will do nothing but
kill -

or do we hold back our armies
and use our brains

We are now committed.
Is this the only way?
Does right need might?
