The Future

I'm Watchin' You!

Forties and Fifties

Atumn, God's Colorful Palette

The Life and Death of a Scarecrow

Without a Single Ray of Sun

A Moment In Time

I'm Watchin' You!

I'm watching you from the light poles,
from the building tops, from the spy
in the sky. I'm listing to you on your
phone, on your cell, on your computer.
Whisperers in the wind. I'm listing to you
from the beginning to the end.
I know what books you read and what
life you lead.

Secrets! You have none, for privacy is
washed up and done! I know who you are,
were you are and where you go, and the IRS
knows how much you owe!

If privacy is what you want, then stick your head
in the sand, for big brother knows ever move you
make before hand.

Just wait until the year 2110, that's when
Big brother will put a chip under your skin!

Jackie R. Kays
