Alice's DMCA?

I started to write one of the parodies of Alice's Restaurant, but I didn't feel inspired to do pages and pages of it. This was the initial paragraph:

And I, I walked over to the, to the bench there, and there is, Group W's where they put you if you may not be moral enough to join the Total Information Agency after committing your special computer crime, and there was all kinds of mean nasty ugly looking people on the bench there. Viagra spammers. Credit-card crackers. Relay-rapers! Relay-rapers sitting right there on the bench next to me! And they was mean and nasty and ugly and horrible cracker-type guys sitting on the bench next to me. And the meanest, ugliest, nastiest one, the meanest relay-raper of them all, was coming over to me and he was mean 'n' ugly 'n' nasty 'n' horrible and all kind of things and he sat down next to me and said, "Kid, whad'ya get?" I said, "I didn't get nothing, I had to pay $500,000 and take down the hyperlink." He said, "What were you arrested for, kid?" And I said, "Circumvention." And they all moved away from me on the bench there, and the hairy eyeball and all kinds of mean nasty things, till I said, "And violating a shrinkwrap license". And they all came back, shook my hand, and we had a great time on the bench, talkin about spamming, credit-card cracking, relay-raping, all kinds of groovy things that we was talking about on the bench. ...

... And friends, they may think it's a movement. ...
