When Making Sense Doesn't Make Sense

Orwell might insist that freedom is the freedom to say
2+2=4.*
But it helps your mind more,
to give your brain the chance to stretch and run and, yes, play.
So let your synapses thrive
and say 2+2=5.

*Incidentally, it took yours truly about 36 years of being on this earth to finally agree with this commingling of freedom and responsibility.
