Limericks, Nr.05 ó Whenever

Whenever a reason is used † † †
to tighten authorityís screws † † †
itís vital to question † † †
the reason thatís given † † †
exposing the clandestine clues † † †
†† † †
and sifting the various views † † †
is tiresome, it gives you the blues † † †
butís gotta be done † † †
though sure ainít much fun † † †
to pinpoint whateverís the ruse † † †
† † †  
and midst all the doníts and the doís † † †
we worry at home whatís to lose † † †
but while weíre retracted † † †
authorities acted: † † †
a match has been lit to a fuse † † †
† † †  
itís burning real fast, and the news † † †
is ready to prompt us with cues, † † †
uploads our psychology † † †
new ideology, † † †
shaping the options we choose † † †
† † †  
so stand back and calmly peruse † † †
whatís painting political hues † † †
and there at the back † † †
the potions are stacked † † †
to serve to the masses the brews.
