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.

 

ENVOI:

 

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.
