Selfie With A Tiger? Go To Jail

When it comes to regulating behavior the minds of politicians are a fertile field
Common sense becomes a casualty; from the politicians it can no longer us shield
In New York taking a selfie with a tiger or other big feline with claws
Is now at the first of the year against New York law
Anyone who is dumb enough to put a face next to a lion is lacking one too many screws
That is not what any level headed person would do
In New York also if you want to pierce your pet’s ears
It will land you in jail after the first of the year
California shoppers are in for a rude surprise
This summer they will see the plastic bag’s demise
No more spontaneous trip to the market to buy food to open one’s pantry doors
Carry reusables in the car at all times the preferably washed before heading into the store
Two more states and the D.C. join the Purple haze creep
Step by step the War on Drugs is going down to defeat
Just a few examples of the tendency to control and in our lives intrude
No wonder we feel safer when the pols are on a vacation interlude
