Lives Sold

In response to Scott’s Daily Prompt, 1984

We are being watched
Because we craved attention
Saught out fame
And paid
With our privacy

Big Brother is Dead

George Orwell’s

1984

Showed us the nightmare vision of socialism gone to extremes

It didn’t come to pass.

Instead – we welcomed in something far more insidious.

Capitalism unmarked.

Welcome to

Mankind Limited

Welcome to the rebellion

Welcome to The Secret

Hesitation

By Scott Bailey 2017

I hesitate
Vacillate
Dissemble
Hold back
Yet the words I need
To express to you
Are bursting
In me
They need freedom.
I
I
OK
Here goes

Um.
Where did you go?
