Nothing is personal or sacred today it would seem
each one of us watched in one way or another
any secrets can soon be in the public domain
as there are those snooping of the official kind
even a neighbour or a so-called close friend
spying and seeking evidence you can’t defend!
Our home phones and mobiles can be quickly tapped
computers being hacked and viruses downloaded
wherever we turn the cameras are there tracking
to catch us speeding and check number plates
undercover agents look to see if we illegally claim
catching those they say are the right ones to blame!
The major rise is by frauds and crooks after our cash
from false emails stating you’ve won big money
to your credit and debit card details being cloned
with the genuine hard workers and honest folk
targets for private bailiffs able to seek and hound
crooks ready to steal leaving us dead on the ground!
Becoming a nasty complex and frightening society
treated like fools in repugnant ways
protection undermined by the so-called authorities
we are told what they want us to believe
honesty is no security against prosecution anymore
most dread the future that is for sure!
The Foureyed Poet.
