"Flaming Liberal"

 
Hair afire   
eyes ablaze      
bleeding heart worn on my sleeve        
believing in changing my world      
one deed at a time        
hands open in kindness    
soul accepting alternatives      
mind embracing the strength of diversity     
 
Hair afire     
eyes ablaze   
bleeding heart worn on my sleeve      
expecting chivalry and honor       
even among the thieves      
hands sustaining the destitute      
soul offering them hope       
mind implementing the strategies of success        
 
Hair afire     
eyes ablaze      
bleeding heart worn on my sleeve     
acknowledging the flaws     
within the order    
hands mending the tears     
soul nursing lost courage      
mind deciphering the woes of our world
      
Hair afire    
eyes ablaze  
bleeding heart worn on my sleeve     
ignoring taunts and insults     
from conformists      
hands reaching for harmony    
soul seeking tolerance     
mind exploring multiple paths for our destiny
