'We' Are 'Keyed' Expeditiously - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

IF you or 'I' had information that would upset...
The national security,
Of this government.
We would quickly be arrested.
And silenced our protests.
I doubt with seriousness...
If our actions would be gleefully consented!

And 'if' I released documents over the internet...
Anyone should make and get,
A guaranteed winning bet...
My next steps would take place,
In an infested cell with no visiting guests!

But these actions I mention,
Have been done by a respected service...
Known to almost everyone.
And the government has 'yet'...
To prevent or stop these threats,
By an internet service...
That is public accessed!

And you and I...
Are daily wiretapped,
With movements watched....
As our human rights go neglected and unprotected!

And 'we' are 'keyed' expeditiously!
With no peace to welcome.
Or sleep to rest!
