It's A Free World After All

This world is filled with sundry voices
Offering mankind diverse choices.
Messages in myth and media
Insidiously want to leadia;
Republican and Democrat
Try to tell you where it’s at.
Preacher and politico
Point the right way you should go.
Both the Christian faith and Jewish
Offer options none too fewish:
Orthodox and Presbyterian
Set the path they want to steer ye in.
Talk shows, with each latest guest
Pontificate what they think best.
Of course I could go on; but see—
That little choice is up to me!
Their racket’s pushed me to the brink;
I’ve made up my own mind—I think.
