“Freedom” [2] by Langston Hughes

 

images (2)Some folks think
By burning books
They burn Freedom.

Some folks think
By imprisoning Nehru
They imprison Freedom.

Some folks think
By lynching a Negro
They lynch Freedom.

But Freedom
Stands up and laughs
In their faces
And says,

You’ll never kill me!

 

–  Jim Crow’s Last Stand, 1943
