Point of View: Ah, Freedom

A reading of the freedoms

   Ah, Independence Day. The heady air of freedom!      
   Freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, freedom from self-censorship, freedom from toeing the line, freedom from zeal, freedom from banality, freedom from filling out forms, freedom from conforming, freedom from filling out more forms, freedom from drudgery, freedom from helicopter noise.
    Freedom from trembling, freedom from dissembling, freedom from idee fixes, freedom from margarita mixes, freedom from hand-wringing, freedom from barbershop singing, freedom from gas, freedom from race and class.
    Freedom from Facebook, freedom from iPhones, freedom from iPads, freedom from texting, freedom from tweeting, freedom from time, freedom from Lyme.
    Freedom from fear, freedom from deer, freedom from greed, freedom from need, freedom from visions, freedom from fission, freedom from vanity, freedom from inanity, freedom from paranoia, freedom from soya.
    Freedom from angst, freedom from gas-guzzling tanks, freedom from innumerable pests, freedom from all standardized tests.
    Freedom from menial chores, freedom from credit scores, freedom from upscale stores, freedom from herpes sores, freedom from all contention, freedom from the latest invention, freedom from unction, freedom from erectile dysfunction.
    Freedom from all sorts of diseases, even unto minor wheezes, freedom from whatever displeases, freedom from polysaturated fats, freedom from unregistered gats, freedom from human cravings, freedom from epistolary ravings.
    Freedom from hasty conclusions, freedom from unwanted protrusions, freedom from any illusions.
    Freedom from traffic stops, freedom from flights with three hops, freedom from unmerited plaudits, freedom from Internal Revenue audits, freedom from exterior lighting, freedom from town board infighting, and freedom, in short, from overwriting.
