For Kevin Eric Anderson
Who loves poems & poets
In a far off land there is a lonely
man--held so he won't run wild.
True he is fed and given a bed, taxes
pay for his defense and child.
But the baby cried for the father
denied, he is seven months in jail.
Justice aside, the judge replied, "Star
Wars orders--held without bail."
Political prisoners are in the other
lands, you see
We live in the land of the brave and
of the free.
