Is Anybody Listening?

A click on the telephone line makes you think

was that somebody listening to your call

how can it be what a daft train of thought

who would want to tap into what you say

but that nagging feeling just wont go away

growing doubts in your mind come into play!


Once upon a time tapping a phone was no  joke

in the crazy culture of mistrust certainly not

freedom today is only a word nobody is safe

everything we do or say can be monitored

if you have done nothing wrong what is to fear

disturbing there maybe a listening ear!


So much talk in recent years the lack of privacy

conversations with anybody not confidential

even more today nothing is untouchable

in the name of security the universal  story

it is sad when nobody feels safe to speak

told prying needed to bring the peace we seek!


Though with technology that is forever advancing

nothing can be sacred for very long

with social media our lives public knowledge

every habit and choice stored somewhere

logged in on some unknown computer interface

each motion stored at an increasing pace!


The public take no notice of surveillance anymore

nobody this practice seems to deplore!
