Treasure Island

Lawrence S. Pertillar

(February/'47 / Connecticut, USA)

Undetected Yet Implemented

Who but a withering few actually cares,
About correct and proper etiquette...
When everyone's privacy has been invaded,
To create a pretense with a scheming meant...
That a doing of this establishes security.
And a stronger defense intended to protect,
Interests of those secretly imposed...
By a snooping going on as people doze.

Who but a withering few,
Have not been affected by effective corruption.
With those few caring less how much they consume.
Or how they collect what information they get,
And/or from whom to further deplete wishes for peace...
To satisfy their dying evilness with fresh interpretations,
As a way a public 'trust' will feel safer in their places.
While a censorship goes undetected yet implemented.

Your privacy has long been non-existent.
Feel free to maintain any delusion that you please.
Isn't it the truth you have been taught to fear?
And those who speak it offend the feeding of your feast.
Although decreasing your mind can not release from it.
Since an addiction resides fixed in your head and is permanent.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
