Citizen #526-37-5989 - you are to be terminated
for thinking improper thoughts
We have probed your mind
& come to find
you don't believe in the System
You're guilty of spreading false ideas
about our Glorious Way
& have used unauthorized channels
to spread dismay
The penalty for disobedience is simple:
termination starts immediately
Let your case
serve as a warning to others
undermining our God-Given Freedoms
|| If a single ideology becomes a State, this could happen.
