Innocent Of All Charges

I pledge allegiance
to the USA Patriot Act
and to the shredding of the Bill of Rights
for which it was enacted.

I sign my loyalty
to the NSA Panopticon
and to the Full Spectrum Dominance
of friend and foe alike.

I stand in awe
of the double tap
signature drone strike on those
who hate my freedoms.

I do my part
by stalking the punks
I see passing in the neighborhood –
my Glock at the ready.
