Future so Bright

This is just it,
the actual thing.
While we are quite correctly
concerned about
surveillance and spooks
pawing through
our lives.
The rest of the
don't give a damn.
Are happy for that
ploughing up of their
home paddock
the mining in the dark
tunnels of
whatever they call a soul.
As long as they
have a big TV
and sugary beer
 to numb the pain
of a life stolen
when it can be
from corporate overlords.
They'll keep voting and voting and voting
for a used car salesman
of the old school
who guides your  hand
to the dotted line.
So it was us
with our high minded
democracy talk and
thoughts of equality
who were wrong
about this country.
