We are each of us, imprisoned
Here in this very room, each of us are being watched
Checked up on constantly
Our every action seen and catalogued
Kept on a list
We obey their rules
In the hope of receiving a reward
Or avoiding the list of those that dissent
Who’s on what list?
Are you one of the well behaved?
Did you follow these rules?
These arbitrary constructs!
Decided by another
Far more powerful than ourselves
An individual more in control of our lives
Than any nefarious Gestapo or Stazi
Shrouded in disbelief!
Indoctrinating our children!
The most complete network of control over human life
That the world has ever seen
With access to every home
Access to every room
Every Family in the world.
No lock can bar their path
And no door can prevent entry
Terrible and terrifying
We may wish to resist but no one can
We can’t stop him
