The Free Way
In a dream the other night
I went shopping with a friend
At the public department store.
Over the heads of the enormous lines
Of people waiting to go in
The sign proclaimed: FREEWAY MART.
Let's go to another store,
One that's not so crowded.
"No use," my friend replied,
"all the stores are as busy as this one."
Why the name FREEWAY MART? I asked.
"Because the goods are free inside."
But who pays for them?
"Oh, we all do, through our taxes."
Wow, the taxes must be very high.
"Not at all, they've just this year been reduced,
From 97% to 96% of our wages."
But people who don't use any of the goods here,
do they pay just as much as those that do?
"Oh sure, sometimes more, depending on their ability to pay."
Then I rose and drove to work over "free" roads
And wondered if I could afford that kind of freedom.
