Big Brother




He blithely wanders along
Down a near empty street
Off to see his mates for their
Monthly catch up and meet.
He's happily unaware that
As he saunters slowly by
His every move is noted
By that Big Eye in the sky.

He stops to take some money
From the street cash machine
His every transaction recorded
His every visit filmed and seen
The internet logs his browsing
He may think it's a mystery
But it's still there even though
He deletes his browsing history.
His location precisely placed
From use of his mobile phone
In these modern times a person
Is very seldom really on his own.
Not quite as Orwell pictured it
But so very very near
Whether we like it or not
1984 is really here.

Big Brother Is Watching
They say in a good cause
Helping to maintain stability
Ensuring we keep the laws.
It supposedly keeps us safe
Every single place we go
But in reality it's just to
Maintain the Status Quo.
