Lieing Spies Are All Over The Place


Those who have lied and in a secret spying,
And hired other spies to snoop for them...
Are now accusing those snoops of treason.
For reasons to suspect them of betrayal,
Because they refuse to continue with the doing.
And have failed to be the 'creeps' they were hired to be.

And now, today like pests and unaccepted insects,
Lieing spies are all over the place...
Campaining to gain the trust of the people.
By saying they had no intention to infringe upon,
Their peace of mind and privacy...
With a listening to everything they say everyday,
To probe with a doing even 'after' they have gone to bed.

Yet what had been done was to ensure the safety,
And best interest of everyone, as is claimed...
Like a profiling done to perform on someone,
Just wanting to mind their own business to do as done.
And...
In their own neighborhoods.

But the crooks, deceivers and thieves believe,
Those who are apparently innocent 'and' peaceful...
Are the ones with 'looks' and appearances to be suspect.
And are reported to be threats,
To an idealistic although highly deluded quality of life.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
