For President Obama

For any federal employee
The mission is sacrosanct
First and above all else
Is the oath to defend and protect
The Constitution of the United States

Any nondisclosure agreement
Comes after taking the oath
The classified program was not created
To cover up the wrong-doing of most
Who have disregarded their oath

The Constitution prohibits
Inhibiting freedom of speech
By act of Congress
But they passed the PATRIOT Act anyway
Because they were afraid

“I know not what others may choose”
Patrick Henry once said
But he wasn’t afraid of death
Unlike Congress who took an oath
To defend and protect

The President’s oath is the same
As with all of the NSA
Yet no one’s destroyed the ill-gotten gains
They argue about who will maintain
The files that defile the Constitution

None of them remember the mission
To protect and defend the Constitution
None of them is worthy to cast a stone
Against Eric Snowden
Who spoke out against all that’s wrong

I didn’t know when I voted for the President
“Transparent government” meant my life but not his
That “change” meant what’s ok for me
Isn’t good enough for the political rich
Who’ve committed treason

When the government overrides the Constitution
When the government demonizes its mission
Is there a country left in which I live?
I swore to defend the Constitution
But my words are my only weapon
