By Andrew R. Duckworth
When they come for your texts,
Whether simple or complex,
Don’t be surprised.
They won’t come like a thief in the night,
They’ll operate in broad daylight,
Right before all eyes.
When they tell you it’s for the greater good,
Don’t let it be misunderstood,
They like to coat their lies.
And, when the time is running late,
They’ll have you at the altar of state,
Bearing no disguise.
