Some Rights I Will Not Give Up (limerick)

Updated on January 31, 2015

For this I would fight with all might

Brave heroes died to win this right

Now their legacy

Was counting on me

To control the T.V. tonight

      Clever take on man's omnipotent control of the remote!

      He always has the rule

      Whenever he has the tool!

      (Interpret at your own risk)

      Voted up, funny, and interesting.

      Take a man's remote away and he might pout.

      Take a woman's away and she will shout.--like me.

      You are always a pleasure to read.
