It’s… The Government… Stupid

As we crossed a trackless plain

   directed by camera –

our only record

as we crossed a trackless plain

      directed by camera:


A cluster of legs accelerated

   numbers heated by bodies

heated by bodies

ready for the quick stamp panic attack

               of gas attack.

Repeated and played and watched

by men and women tracking us

   senior officials with senior and sensitive facts

about our lives and loves

   repeating to themselves

it was good for us to be watched

   and after the attack to conclude

there were now less of us to track.
