Today's Bad Poem

I've been traveling and haven't had time for any more careful thought than which lane to pick on the motorways/highways or how to survive on McDonald's food without eating corpses (heh, after all these years I went there, I did).  So you get an old bad pome, suitable for Martin Luther King day and other events taking place today:

Declaration of Independence

These are the rules
we must abide by:
Do not ask how,
do not ask why.

This is the land
of the free and the brave
where some stay free
from cradle to grave.

And others are brave
in their freedomless state
so that those who are free
have more on their plate.

These are the rules
for which we would die.
Do not doubt how,
do not doubt why.
