Something in e'ry loyal heart stirs
At the thought that you will soon pass a new FISA,
Thinking none of us will be the wiser.
For freedom's sake, challenge liberty
Assuming that no one can see,
And set aside the only courts
That judge a scoundrel's last resorts.
The assumptions under which we labor,
That domestic spying is best left to our neighbor,
That privacy's too precious to be bought
Surely needed a second thought.
And so you took initiative,
Little enough to offer but much to give,
And provided us with your new thinking,
Muddled some, I reckon, by your drinking.
Enlightened now, I find the need,
For sympathy with your misdeed,
For I, myself, wish I could wiretap
The minds behind your flapping traps.
Let the government now listen in
To the words we speak within the din.
But, of what you hear, take care what's true
Because some of us have learned from you.
WOLFPACK, n. Change we can believe in.
Thanks, Cooper for the inspiration.
