pomes of buddy don: You Need Not Be Proved Guilty

You Need Not Be Proved Guilty

You need not be proved guilty to sustain
More troubles than you ever could expect –
For if the president should ascertain
From phone records he claims he may collect
That your calling patterns might contain
Suggestions that you might just be suspect –
You could lose the few rights you think remain
And be thrown into prison to protect
Your fellow citizens, for to be plain
They cannot risk the chance you might defect!

Such is the price we pay if we neglect
To keep the president's power in check.
