In Case You Missed It

Sleeping through
The last decade
I never realized our
Orwellian future
Had already covered us
In its thick
Comfortable folds

That far off nightmare
Now just a weekday soap
With satellites watching
Our every move
Others for rent
So anybody can participate
In the espionage

Personal computers
Just an unblinking
And all talking eye
Infiltrating our homes
Collecting data
And selling it
To the darkest corners
Of the virtual universe

A picture of my street
My truck
In my driveway and
Living room window beyond
Taken by who
Or what exactly

There is no longer
Anything to be done
And nowhere left to hide
For those of us
Who choose
Not to be exposed

  1. Tremored so was I
    when googling maps
    I saw my own self
    my own son
    I never saw
    who saw
