Do not write about that stuff

Because they said so

Do not burn the precious books,

Let all read and think.

To learn the worlds secret truth

Banned four fifty one

Through the minds of the children

Dark beauty roam free

Let’s misinterpret

The rye catcher in his field

Saving innocence

Are we free to read...or enslaved
To society?
