You tagged me in your post

Corralled me into a herd

Said you are with me

Or against me

I can’t be that specific

I value freedom


Rule of law

Justice for all

The separation of church and state

So when I am stampeded

I jump the fence

And bolt

The American Taliban can’t rule my life

I stand supra religiosity

Freedom to believe is what I crave

Extended to all

Equal rights without caveats

Freedom of choice

Politics shouldn’t be about prayer

The state has no business in





Or oak trees in the woods

The state should make sure the infrastructure

Is adequate

The state should make sure the playing field

Is equal

Then back off

As I back off from
