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.
