Tyranny persisted after the dark day.
It did not come from outsiders or attackers.
It came from the people with power.
Of course they talked about safety.
Safety from citizens, safety for citizens.
In a sense it is just another way for control.
The people protest nothing is done.
Security it seems often comes above safety.
Detainment and profiling is the norm.
It seems in a time of crisis democracy slides toward dictatorship.
There are some who wish to be secure and free.
It is they who allow basic freedoms to be restored.
The slide toward democracy begins.
