Ignorantia Regnans
by DCDave

Bill Clinton was raised in a center of vice,
Not in his birthplace of Hope,
And he permitted his state to become
A hub for illegal dope.

J. Edgar Hoover and LBJ
Were cronies with underworld ties.
Their reputations when they were alive
Were built on elaborate lies.

Thanks to our treasured First Amendment
We can learn about these things and more,
But they ought to be common knowledge
Instead of just arcane lore.

The state of this country's precious freedom
Is quite a bit worse than it looks,
When the information that's most important
Can only be found in books.
