The Constitutional Rightser

"Free speech is one of my Constitutional Rights

"even if what I say injures, bruises, or slights

"some fragile listeners' slim sense of self-esteem;

"I do not care how loud or silent is their scream."


Many applauded him with shouts---"Well said, well said!"


Now that his body, as his soul had been, is dead:
what might the Christ say to him, perhaps angrily?


What you did to the least of mine, you did to Me.




And after that the Rightser learned his Right did not dispel---

now he can shriek to heart's content as he slow-sears in Hell.
