The Lyrics

For Saint Valentine's Day, I had to choose an OS about love. I had read rumors that the drone fleet so successful in foreign lands might be used within the USA. Yesterday, the FAA was authorized to conduct a study of the safety and efficacy of such flights within US borders. Initially they would serve only law-enforcement purposes, but since one American citizen already has been killed overseas, my scenario below might happen in the next few years.
I look at clouds and suddenly,
Something in the skies I see
Soon begins e-watching me.
It's that cold devil drone
That's patrolling the skies.
It's that cold devil drone in disguise.

New and enhanced,
Nation's expanse
Blue sought to handle.
Cars in full flight,
Lasered with light,
Can fold, dismantled
Through drones' razzle-dazzle.

They've got me flyin', tryin' hide
On a tragic target ride;
Foolish flutter, I've been spied!
Wanna die not so soon,
Want updraft and balloon,
But that cold devil drone wins its prize.

Just when I think,
"It's free land I love."
Cold devil drone,
Sleepless four eyes,
Winds up above.

Ending line 19, I'd change "its prize" to "sure prize" to match TOS and doom.

Yes, the US uses a vast array of UAVs and primitive UCAVs (Predators, Reaper, Avengers, and Sentinels) to jam enemy AD radars and also to kill terrorists... but they also cause a lot of collateral damage when the goal was "surgical strikes". In the US they should be used on the southern border with Mexico against both illegal immigrants and the aiding, corrupt Mexican Army. With any other nation, this aid to cross borders would be considered an act of war. But eventually, the skies will be filled with "loitering eyes" watching us all. Big Brother is already here. In London, the avg. person is photographed 300 times a day if active in the city due to CCT tech. In the US there are already cameras all over the place too. God isn't the only one watching anymore!

Well Barry, I think this falls under the Cass Sunstein "things to discredit" list!
