Bloggers should be packed in gaol
Unless their ceaseless chunter
Reveres the generals without fail:
May saints preserve their junta.

All Burmans know they're firm and fair:
Its leaders scorn the free.
So they should take especial care -
All curse Aung San Suu Kyi.

Hick hacks upon the internet
Expectorate, no more:
Let them be caught in traps well-set,
Let them observe the law.

How much we pray their paracrostic
Odes be burned and banned.
Let all their mouths be sealed with Bostik.
Egad! Ain't Burma grand!
