Watching (poem)

At our ease

Thoughts to please

Peace to seize

They’re watching


On the street

Things we greet

Home’s retreat



Words on phone

Moans and groans

All we own



Madness and sadness

Pervades through our life

Meeting our needs

Telling us what we want



Thoughts in head

Might have said

Jokes we spread

They’re watching


Viewing show

Mindless flow

Letting go




Endless and hopeless

Prying ears and eyes

Promising safety

As something else still dies



Lives they saved

Money’s knaves

To our graves

These depraved

Still watching


Music only
