As of yet,
There is no law to prevent anyone...
From lieing and using alibis to create them,
To themselves told to tell.
Lieing to others as a defense to accuse others.
For what they did not do to prove.
And this is said,
To be a right one is entitled to do.
Regardless of whose credibility and integrity,
Has become ruined and destroyed.
Those who lie and deceive,
Done with incredible dishonesty.
No one believes.
Is protected by a law that allows free speech.
While those maintain to keep,
Saying what they please to claim...
They are the ones victimized,
By an injustice applied to satisfy others.
Others once seen to sit.
Then jump to their feet.
Producing evidence and the proof of it.
That in private and public too!
Their lives have been intentionally destroyed,
By those who deceive, lie and disobey laws,
Should be treated like everyone else.
Because of a name to have given not to earn.
And a status obtained.
With followers entertained to remain,
Applauding those lawless...
Who fraud, corrupt and deceive.
Like the heros they see on TV and in movies.
Galloping away on their horses to ride high.
Towards the Sunset to leave behind,
All crimes alleged to have committed.
Free from a chasing posse.
Observed to witness cheering and waving,
Enthusiastically with tears wiped from eyes!
To return back and blame,
The ones innocent for providing...
Too much proof and evidence.
Without none of it to fiction!
What you guys are saying.
Makes no sense at all.'
'We said the same thing.
That's why we came back.
After we realize,
The facts and truth was used as a distraction.
To confuse us to what was what.
And which was which!'
'What purpose are we here to serve?'
'There you go,
Trying to judge us.
And all we did,
Was to make sure everyone...
Self serving or not,
Has the right to free speech.
With a doing as they please
To keep protected.
And that's what we did done to do!'
'Were you paid to disobey our way of life?'
So you'll have a reason,
To have us arrested for not paying taxes?
If we were to have been paid,
It was not from under a table.
Investigate that on your time not ours!'
'What has happened,
To the rules and laws of justice?'
'What has happened to the kettle,
Hiding all the pots cloaked in black!?'
