Vote #etheree #doubleetheree

US Capital

Me
And You
Our duty
For liberty
An obligation
Paid with our fathers’ blood
Yet no cost to perform it
To express our inner believes
To put our philosophy on line
To choose the direction of our country
I don’t understand why it is so hard
So many ignore this basic right
Some try to stop others from it
People feel bound by their chains
Stopped by constraints of time
Break those nasty chains
Open the door
And join me
Go out
Vote!

Written for Colleen’s Poetry challenge.  Each week she gives us two keywords, only we must use synonyms only, not the words themselves.  This week we were given free reign to chose our own words.  Mine were “Free” (including “freedom”) and  “Act” (including “take action”).  This week I chose a Double Etheree.
