coming attraction

president hope & change grows more corrupt to the
core,
as most figureheads do when they are fed a few more
years of
power &
with his hope & change comes 
the new BRAIN Initiative,
whose puppet master, 
the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA),
paints a pretty picture for the public,
saying that the Department of Defense will be able to
simply scan the brains of suspected terrorists,
instead of torturing them,
in order to get what information they want
so that we will all be
“protected.”

are you looking forward to having your own brain
scanned?
are you looking forward to being dragged in by the cops
who found you with the drones,
that will use the new brain scanning technology
that slid neath’ the public radar
with dreams of “curing brain disorders like autism,
epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, schizophrenia and
Alzheimer’s?”

to congress president hope & change goes,
to get the $100 million,
to get the ball rolling,
to ensure that as this empire continues to decline &
the gap between the rich & the poor continues to
grow,
that there will be yet another way to **** with those
who haven’t got a thing---
to the podium he goes
to be a good lil’ puppet,
to do the bidding of those who paid his way,
just like he said he would.

(the thought police are coming)

    They're coming to take you away oh no. That sounds like the crux of the poem. McCarthyism in the mainstream. Right? Jim Horn
