Everybody Spying on Everybody Else: a Satirical Poem
Hey, do you see that poor guy
with white cane and those dark glasses?
He must be another foreign spy
taking snapshots of our asses.
And what do you make of that pretty blonde
lying on the beach and almost nude?
It could be none other but a James Bond
or some other well disguised dude.
They are everywhere that you don't look.
And are you even sure about your wife?
What if she is only another spook;
so if you see her texting, run for your life.
Then how do I know you are not one
watching me through my laptop screen,
reporting something that I haven't done
and smudging my record innocent and clean.
And how do you know who I am
while writing this silly poem on spying?
Maybe I am working for Uncle Sam
---although it's so easy to catch me lying.
Well, here I go laughing at my yapping
about paranoia over private living,
and I'm not really counting on your clapping
to this clumsy act of a silly deceiving.
