O Big Brother Where Art Thou

Osiris watching from the sky

Satellite recon harvesting personal

data on you and I

Sending chills down the spine

In the name of national security

Big brother is listening on the line

Privacy eroded freedoms rights scorned

Electronic surveillance now the norm	

Everywhere you go Big brother knows

Everything you do Big Brother is watching you

    Afraid big brother is going to be disappointed watching me - unless of course, reading rabble rousing poets means anything! Just kidding. I never look at poems from a "contest" point of view, but I think you captured the concept succinctly. Certainly has evolved since this was written, no?

    I agree with what your saying it feels like that now a bit unfair When I was youger about twenty two I liked to be noticed but now prefer to be in the back groung

    Is the late George Orwell's prophecy coming true? I would hate to think so even though it sure seems like it's becoming reality. You have given us something good to ponder.

    This is a scary thought. It has been building for a long time, more and more surveillance, yet I feel less secure.

    My fear of the Almighty is greater than the fear of mortal men! Peace and blessings.
