Wanted list

They called my friend and I over The atmosphere was mad tense Peril floated nimbly in the crisp air Bloody pictures messed with our imagination "Terrorists wanted list ,give us your names" Imagine the shock and unfettered terror . We gave them our names ,and they drove off or is it cycled? Apparently they had been watching us for a while In the land 'Terrorist' meant everyone who didn't agree with the powers that be it appeared One friend joined us ,inebriated to the gills Absolute shocker!!! The guy had always been the pinnacle of sobriety Seeing his name added to the "Terrorist list" had taken it toll on him Fear gripped us like prey on the hyena's jaws Unprecedented levels of reign of terror being unleashed . "Never walk together again ,Ever.They will think you are plotting" One 'Good Samaritan chipped in So we separated with my friend ,the air was getting denser by the minute They had succeeded yet again in instilling fear In us In making themselves Invincible in our eyes Why are we always on the shallow end of the pool? Five steps ahead of us they always seem But we shall overcome
