Subject: re: For Dianne Feinstein, Torture Report’s Release Is a Signal Moment
To the Editor:
How long had Feinstein played James Clapper's whore
enabling spies she's paid to oversee?
to serve her voters seemed a dreadful bore
for one of such exalted dignity
But now they've spied on her! should we feign shock?
their files hold dirt on all, both low and high
who might by law have put them in the dock
to pass sentence on their numerous crimes
who watches over the custodians
when oversight's struck blind, and sov'reigns kneel
when Rights refract through Orwellian lens
and PATRIOT's just code for "tyranny"
don't despair yet, let's fight for what we sang
at least until we've seen torturers hang
