I’m offended; she’s offended and he’s offended too
Good Morning America—what’s offending you?
Got a great day planned here just for you—it’s true
Welcome to the all-offending and all inclusive Offending Zoo!
We start from the rooftop or the top of the heap
A picture worth a 1,000 words—what the bleep!
And no no self-respecting offense would ever be complete
without something, on the bottom of your feet.
I’ve done my best
You fill in the rest
There’s something here to offend everyone and it’s not a reach
But why? You know it’s all—freedom of speech!
So go ahead—just gasp and cringe and blink
but apparently, speech does not include—

the freedom to think

FreeThought

“Every time I walk by your house I’m offended” – neighbor says

FreeThought2

“Hey, it’s a free country!” as they walk on the symbol of oppression

FreeThought3

Oh sure, make a point by desecrating the flag by the Constitutionally protected right to the freedom of expression?

 

 

FreeThought4

“Don’t wrap me in your war mongering!”

FreeThought5

“Tattered, faded and torn, so what? Watch me dance and sing!”

FreeThought6

“It’s my Individual ass!”

FreeThought7

“Show your patriotism or your expensive designer jean shorts!”

FreeThought8

“I am America!” My religion is none of your business!”

FreeThought9

“Give me your tired and poor, yearning to be free!” No job or food, but here’s a nice blanket for you. It does look much better than newspapers.

FreeThought10

“Yep, I luv it! I’ve just never read the U.S. Flag Code.”

FreeThought11

I must confess that some are not offended by a nation in distress

 

FreeThought12

“F–k U America!” says the US Citizen

FreeThought13

“So what if it’s dragging on the ground, I’m naked, hot and made you look!”

 

 

 

 

 

FreeThought15

“Piss on you USA!” says a US citizen

FreeThought14

“No, it’s not old and this is not a ceremonial flag burning. Just thought this was cool!” says a US citizen

FreeThought16

“America, you are so full of crap, I crap on you!” says a US citizen

FreeThought17

Spit on it!

FreeThought18

No America! It’s in distress and all upside down!

FreeThought19

And perhaps the most offensive of all, that she still flies in, “The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!”

FreeThought20

If WE think Free, WE will speak and act Free!
