The Price of Democracy

by Michael H. Brownstein

The price of freedom has no price
and the poet’s poem can be the solution.
A lynch mob has no authority over words.
Honor thy father and thy mother, treat
your brother the way you wish to be treated,
but no nation right when it is right
or right when it is wrong deserves the same.
God does not bless a country: we do.
Action is the liquid of words in motion,
Zhu Yufu, keep up the words of change,
Know you are a hero thousands of miles away.
Know one man can change a destiny of a nation.
Know one man can lead a people.
Know one man can be enough.
