Rational Anthem

Ivan Jenson

What if nobody
is watching
and this is
truly a free-for-all
a free fall
a free-hand pitch
at a free agent batter
who knows the best
things in life aren't free
and that the cost of freedom
is beads of sweat, blood
and battalions
of freedom fighters
one nation
under mystery
with belief systems
bursting from sea
to shining sea
