Someone put an asterisk in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence when we weren't looking. They added terms and conditions, the ones nobody bothers to read until they're fucked by them. We live in the 'Land of the Free', asterisk. We have the right to free speech, asterisk. We can practice any religion, or none, asterisk. We have the right of Life and Liberty, asterisk. Rich, white, men know that the asterisk means 'for me, but not for thee," as they smile and waggle their eyebrows at one another. We live our lives surrounded by asterisks. Truth lives in the asterisks.
