I believe my anger at our governments invasion of our privacy has ignited a need to rhyme in ways that make me smile and show my disdain for absolute power bestowed on the NSA.

Land of the free, home of the brave
 
Unless you are a citizen whom they believe may be a knave
 
Try as they may to educate our sensibilities to their power
 
They can now keep track of everything we do or say inside of an hour
 
The rest of the world looks to us with their hopes and dreams
 
Despite the new regulations our government passes for their own means
 
Our forefathers had a belief in the constitution and the bill of rights
 
While the new fathers convince a population with polls and cites
 
Although no one race in this case is being targeted
 
We are all subject to having our life's work harvested
 
This Utopian society being thrust on us is praised in the media
 
With the end of the rainbow feeling more like a case of chlamydia
