Big Brother Is Watching



Haven't got time for those cynical people They're never gonna drag me down Life's too short for whining and complaining In their own negativity they drown For twenty-four seven it's non-stop paranoia Can't imagine living that way On the sunniest day their sun doesn't shine I rather spend time making hay Suspecting the government's watching us Taping us each time we pee Had no idea things had gotten that serious Why such interest in little old me Well I'm just gonna go on my merry old way More important things on my mind Like feeding Dufus and my persian cat Lily A good way to stay sane I find Haven't got time for those cynical people There's exciting stuff to explore This friendly old planet is beckoning me So I'm off to open more doors © Jack Ellison 2013

    Another person realizing that it's ponintless to worry about politics and humanity in general, that there is very little one man can do and that it is better to stay away from all that and just enjoy life. True, true. Yet, we have a few years left here, and enjoyment can't be a man's only purpose. So cynical or not, I strongly disagree with such philosophy.

    This write is so very true my friend, I couldn't be one of those cynical and paranoid people! I'm like you, I just go about my day, not worrying about all those little things that come my way, what may or might be, those little pesky things that hurt those cynical and paranoid people...but won't affect me! I really enjoyed reading this amazing poem this morning Jack! What a terrific piece, Great Work!!
