We Didn’t Know

 
 
 
 
 
Efficient development requires deprivement.
No profit, no playground to feel alive in.
Those few groomed for career cheer, mocking:
“Can’t you hear; that’s freedom knocking.”
“Work for rent, or stay in school, dude.”
You get no cake for being a loser.
Orwell warned “Big Brother is watching.”
We didn’t know he meant on you-tube.
 
We didn’t know our life was a crime.
Sentenced from birth to pay all our time.
Cast from the truck to the roadside to rot.
Shamed outside of luck, all about what you’re not.
Media screams boost revealed truth feud.
Sell corporate garbage labeled food.
Orwell warned; we were warned:
“The best of you will be co-opted.”
We didn’t know they meant on you-tube.
