freedom pounds down on the pavement
soaking into the skin of passers-by
as they hurry to the office, to school.
it settles in puddles,
by the roadside.
It spits and hisses
like a domestic cat turned feral.
far to the west,
fat droplets of freedom
fall into the sea,
creating mini tsunamis of liberty.
waves crash comfortingly
on the cliff-face below.
they seek to erode and destroy.
slowly, land is worn away,
and society tumbles into
an ocean of freedom.
