No Retreat, Reload, Retweet

14 January 2001: "After Tucson shootings, Sarah Palin isn't retreating, she's reloading" - Christian Science Monitor

it's your right to tweet in CAPS LOCK,
it's your right to talk in Glock,
it's your right to stare through cross-hairs
or to draw them on a map,
it's your right to bear a Magnum,
take it down just to admire it,
if you have to, even fire it,
no retreat, reload, retweet

it's your right to fight control,
it's your right to climb a flagpole,
it's your right to burn a flag,
it's your right to say, don't say that
or don't say what I've just said,
no retreat, reload, retweet

it's your right to speak in code
and to tell of God and Bible
and to yell of blood and libel,
it's your right to lay the blame,
it's your right to be defamed
or to talk in ways that wound,
it's your right to call for healing
but say nothing of repealing,
no retreat, reload, retweet

it's your right to be surprised
when we the people exercise
our inalienable right to do
certain things that you do too
and to help you, here's a clue:

it's Amendment Number One,
it's Amendment Number Two,
stupid
