Switch on Freedom


I bought this freedom online.
It arrived just a few days ago.
The messenger left it at my door.
I came from work and found it,
took it inside and read the instructions.
It only needed three batteries
and then I switched it on.
The yellow letters came alive
illuminating the whole room.
The word became the most important.
I switch it on and off as I want.
It shines the most when darkness comes.
That’s when I switch it on.
It reads llibertat
which means freedom
in the Catalan language.
Yet freedom speaks all languages
and so I want to switch it on
in each corner of the world,
for you and for me and for us all.
But just one thing to remember:
We need everlasting batteries.
