Current State

Free isn’t free anymore

Rights are earned, privilege born

the high look down, the strong are poor

free isn’t free anymore


Work two jobs, kids at school,

still no bread in your bowl

Better half sloughs, feel the fool,

deeper we go to the hole


Youth raises up, skills fall through

you still hold on to your tools

kicked and slapped down, feel like a clown

Never let em see you frown

life is a chore, you can’t take much more

When free isn’t free anymore

I'm a high school English teacher in Texas. I also hold degrees in radiography and radio and television broadcasting. Though I obtained certain knowledge and skills from my prior degrees, I do not currently use them.
