A poem I wrote about something going on in the world today.
|A time came to make a choice.
For better or for worse
But did we, really make that choice?
Some of our minds were changed in such a way.
Through advertisement and manipulation of our minds, but with no real crime committed.
For some it was great and for others it caused dismay.
A single man found out what someone had done, dug for answers and said
"Where is my data? What have you done with it? I want it back, I want to know, how you used it".
He had asked for what was rightly his, his life, his secrets...his soul.
But the company that had used it, denied him at every turn, even through law.
The company shut its doors and the data was never returned.
But how do we know, they do not operate today under a different name?
How do we know, they are the only ones?
And data was not shared with other people.
There could be many that do the same, running in the shadows.
Can we ever be sure again, those choices, votes we make are without manipulation?
Thanks to this company and that one man, our eyes are now open, we are, no longer free
We have no choice or free speech and yet more votes approach.
Are we free? Will we ever be again?
We will see.
