Is uniformity to an abiding person inclined
If, always found, they colour between the lines?
Or, in this age of perceived subversion, we find;
The increase in surveillance, demands it be, critically defined.
Lexicon to this 21st Century, conspires to set the stage;
For the eclipse of the past, be it with a whimper or through rage;
The margins of tomorrow will go beyond the written page;
Ear-marked for destruction or, possibly, left living in a Cage!
Challenges to distraction, are losing to the bid;
Manufacture to its reasons: perception to forbid;
Rendering future minds naive, relentlessly morbid;
Pledging a society chaotic and, grievously sordid.
This query-story need not end on so dire a note;
There is gradual rise to reasonable minds espousing hope
But, there is the pervasive mental lethargy of the many, to cope;
For without so doing, it may become a downward slope!
