It is Called Democracy

I’m criticised for exercising

My democratic right

To give voice to my opinions

Though I’ve never claimed they’re right

It seems however my critics

Those who raise their voice 

Are very very adamant 

It seems I have a choice

Be silent and comply

And watch my basic freedoms –

Whither away and die

Well I have a simple answer

Take it as you will

Take your threats away with you

I’ll speak my mind quite openly

I’ll defend my liberty

And my freedom of speech

And whether I disagree

You have a right to your opinion

It is called democracy
