The UN, the Internet and You
I hear the UN wants to take over the Internet,
Rearrange names and numbers but no reason to fret,
Like their Human Rights Councils, they know what to do,
Call it the International Internet Council but who knew?
Where they can direct International Public propaganda,
Influenced by some dictatorís pompous agenda,
And indeed you may find that you are completely banned,
Because of your attitude and political stand.
But never mind, it will all be for a good UN cause,
Theyíll take the Internet from the Americans just because,
They want to organize all this without permission,
Because itís part of their UN political ambition.
And introduce global taxes for poor Kyoto regions,
International red tape bureaucracy for all seasons,
It will be expensive for places with no power,
You better learn to respect them and how to cower.
Of course censorship may be involved in these changes,
Itís what the new UN boss thinks or arranges,
Because if you show disrespect you could go to jail,
Just like their other declared suspects in The Hague.
