Lucy in the Sky with Banned Books!

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!

Banned Books Week is observed every year at the end of September.  Don't let the censors win; celebrate your freedom to read freely!
