Picture yourself in a chair by the window
With chamomile tea, curled up with a book
Suddenly, someone peers over your shoulder,
The censor, with flames in his eyes.
“You should not read that book, it’s full of blasphemy,
Sex, and political lies,
I must protect you from thoughts that will harm your mind,
To implement my designs.”
Celebrate the freedom to read,
Don’t give in to others' creeds,
That’s what makes a democracy!
