Surveillance, Hurray!

Every weekday on the Daily Poet, the day's news in poetry form.

Who needs a warrant anyway
especially when you are bugging everyone everyday?

No, no, not the NSA
Not even for people of the USA

Keep talking and typing and texting away
wink, wink, the government will keep your records at bay

so no matter whatever it is that you say
those words can be used against you one day

Oh Miranda, why were you betrayed
when our government, from our Constitution, went astray

A haiku:

The Boston bombers
must have never made a call
or used internet

Walking is still free
Talking in person, still free
