Eddy Snowden

Edward Snowden

When Edward Snowden* snowed in,
no one thought it a sin,
save the snooping sultans  who froze.
When on the run or cubby-holed, for friends, he had only  woes.

11  jul 13, Clerihew

* Eddy is a former NSA systems analyst who recently leaked details of U.S and British top secret mass surveillance programs.
