“There is nothing that will make a group of men so mad as the truth.” – Will Rogers –

*****

 

What is the problem that our leaders see
When all the free world it for granted takes
And, obviously, Net neutrality
Good sense with our national mandate makes?

‘Twas why we firstly came from England here
(Or so all of our history books teach)
That, free from fee, and likewise free of fear,
Each one of us may exercise our speech —

But let a platform materialize
Actually delivers on that word,
Suddenly to allow it were unwise
Nor let the truly common man be heard

There would be less reluctance, ay, forsooth,
Did some have some less need to fear the truth
