The Liberal's Last Sonnet

(After Glenn Greenwald)

Tired with all these, for Obama's fall I cry:
As to behold "Muslim children slaughtered
by covert drones and cluster bombs,
and America’s minorities imprisoned
by the hundreds of thousands for no good reason,
and the CIA able to run rampant with no checks or transparency,
and privacy eroded further by the unchecked Surveillance State,
and American citizens targeted by the President
for assassination with no due process,
and whistleblowers threatened with life imprisonment for 'espionage,'
and the Fed able to dole out trillions to bankers in secret,
and a substantially higher risk of war with Iran."

Tired with all these, I'd have Obama gone
save that my bleeding heart just cannot stomach Ron.
