even the gravestone will not stifle

even the grave-stone will not stifle
the voices
of those who insist on speaking truth to power
so what can a mere technical block to a site do
even death will not quiet our voices
which will live on through our writings
so what would cowardly censorship do

i chuckle when i see the lengths
that people go to
to silence, to throttle the brave
and uncompromising voices
of people who refuse to kiss ass

how will you stop
what years of internment
behind massive maximum security walls
could not stop

we will still be here
chuckling at the latest feeble attempts
to censor our uncomfortable truths
