Patriotism of Constitution words
Born from colonial times founders.
Banned by American Corporations
From view of billions of people.
Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Cisco,
Sun Microsystems, 3Com, others
American tears of pure shame.
Oh ghosts, turn over in your graves,
Democracy and Freedom banned.
Because the monetary value of green
Banning the reason for Iraq’s war.
Mr. President Bush our allies
Banning the words of our history.
A Constitution censored from view.
American investment in outsourcing
Jobs, to then in source democracy.
Supporting Communist censorship
Giving economic aid to economies
That might later fight democracy,
And the American way of living,
Made possible by Corporate America.
What words have they banned in total?
What words will they filter out soon?
Individuals caught maybe imprisoned.
Does not Congress override policies?
With the Global Internet FREEDOM Act
But yet this is banned, by American help.
Words worth fighting over from heritage
Made from American values of freedom.
That must now be censored for profit.
What patriotism does Corporate America
Claim that we must deny other nations?
Is censorship of free words ever right?
Note: Congress should disallow any outsourcing to any country which had banned democracy and freedom. It should condemn corporations, who are dictated too by other countries, especially against American values and independent words.
