Bill Makes Another Unwise Facebook Posting

A Poem by Elton Camp

The authorities have his house surrounded



Bill Makes Another Unwise Facebook Posting


By Elton Camp


On Facebook, Bill can’t seem to realize

Criticizing the government isn’t wise


It’s brought their wrath on him before

And now he’s done the same once more


Suspicious words he continues to use

His old Uncle Sam it does not amuse


His every post Sam is scrutinizing

That he’s in trouble isn’t surprising


Guns in hand, they’ve got him surrounded

His wife is both angry and astounded


“Bill, to do like this you cannot.

Why, you could even get me shot.”


If the authorities you continue to gall,

A tank may punch a hole in the wall!”


He sits at the computer and types away

And ignores every word she does say


Federal agents burst in and haul him away

Say that his country he attempted to betray


Whatever may appear on the Internet

A close look from Sam is going to get

Mr. Camp, you know you ain't never lied! Free speech and Big Brother are mortal enemies and as time passes, Big Brother is gaining more and more ground.
Timely, relevant, and funny.
