Independence and all that Spaz

Independence...
so what is it?
Liberty? Freedom?
Emancipation?
Deliverance?
What is it? What is it?
Why would a country
that discriminates
certain groups of people
celebrate independence day?
What reason could it possibly have?
Was it tormented?
Was it ostracized?
Was it prejudiced against?
If so, why can't the country understand
what it's like for her nation,
for the minority
who feels the same?
Ban them,
censor them,
cast them aside,
ignore them,
warn them,
sweep them under the tide,
silence them,
shut them,
lock them up,
dictate them,
rule them,
ship them out
and then celebrate independence day
hooray hooray!
