USA=Freedom, It's All Been A Lie

As the government makes indefinite detention into law, 
this is what freedom looks like now

"Give me your tired, your poor, 
your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. 
The wretched refuse of you teamming shore. 
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, 
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!" 
This poem is called the New Colossus 
and it was written by Emma Lazarus.

and no one notices
the public is stupid, asleep, uncaring
or under the belief it will happen to someone else
the military will be given the authority to take any
citizen off the streets
no lawyer
no judge
no hope

and Obama is going to let it happen
the bill passed the Senate
and the House

we now have drones
patrolling the borders of Mexico
and Canada
to keep people out
soon it will to keep people in

to the people of the world
don't judge us badly
don't hate us
it is like many other countries
in the world
it is the government
run amok

we can all be branded
terrorists now.

makes for a great 
reality TV show
right now
Orwell is crying

a sobering cup
of coffee
