Lady Liberty’s Ascension? ~ 1 Quick Limerick #054



Where Lady Liberty sings, freedom rings,
She’s loathed by iron fist, autocrat kings,
They’ll wring out her last breath,
And chokehold her to death,
Till she sprouts angel wings, plucks on harp strings.



Needless to say… don’t ever let autocrats ascend to power in the first place!

Deny them power at the ballot box, wherever / whenever possible!

Don’t ever let them get away with murdering freedom!

Since I am a diehard Star Trek™ buff… not a

Star Wars™ aficionado check out

Videographer Anthony Parisi’s

apt commentary…


“One of the reasons George Lucas made the Star Wars prequels is so kids could, through myth, learn to spot future “Darth Sidious(es)” insidiously rising to power in a democracy. I haven’t seen anybody make a proper mashup yet so here’s my public service to the nation. This is how liberty dies. Listen to George. from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith (2005) and the rise of Donald Trump at the 2016 Republican National Convention (7/18/16)”


OK… I’m back now to offer up my mega thanks to Mr. Parisi for his video,

which greatly enhances my political statement AND to also

express my gratitude to you for reading my verses!
