A Poem for the "Human Rights" Mausoleum Poetry Contest

The Canadian "human rights" mausoleum tweets an invitation to post "a favorite human rights poem" and maybe "win a prize" (one of the swanky items for sale in its gift shop, perhaps?) Here's my entry, self-composed, of course:

I really love my human rights.
Won't give 'em up without some fights.
What I won't do is trade or barter
My rights away for some silly Charter.
A shrine to victimhood is a pointless construction
That honours human rights abduction.
You can't put my rights in a mausoleum.
So hear my plea re rights:
Please free 'em!
