Miley Cyrus twerks her ass
in the face of the hubbubbed mob.
Annointed pundits feign disdain,
then tweet pictures", but none
of Lynne alone in her cage.
The "people" scurry like ants,
monitored and surveiled, liable,
without notice, to be snuffed;
emulsified like organic dirt
under the heels of the State--
above the Law, acting in the name of Law,
sanctioning crime and murder,
in the name of marmoreal memes:
"We the People" in "the home of the brave,"
"created equal" in "the land of the free."
