A Bit Of A Bother

To insure our

Democracy and freedom

There are cameras

In public and private places,

Internet activity and

Phone calls are monitored,

There are twenty-four hour

News channels to keep

Everyone informed,

Governments have their

Own studios to guarantee

The message is as

It is supposed to be,

Most people are comfy

In their cozy freedom

And can’t wait until

The body chip is available,

Carrying cell phones,

Debit and credit cards and ID

Is a bit of a bother.
