On Camera

On Camera
George Orwell was the man who said that Big Brother watches all,
But it seems to me that nowadays it’s the myriad cameras that appal
You can not walk down any street, without their silent gaze,
As someone sits and watches you, when in shopping your engaged,
But get into your motor car and ride the nation’s bye ways
But woe betide you if you speed, they’ll catch you on the highways,
No matter where you go these days, you feature in their lenses,
You can not hide in crowds no more, it’s the intrusion that incenses,
Your free to roam our country but on your own, you’re not,
For high above you in the sky a drone is what you spot,
For now, the countries ringed with cameras, that orbit us in space,
From miles above, they see us and take pictures of your face,
Even at home you’re not secure, as tv’s tech we now allow,
It’s the curse of modern living, Big Brothers here and now
