Turnkey Tyranny’

Upon viewing the linked video detailing the actions of the NSA whistle-blower Edward Snowdon, I was inspired to compose the following poem in response to the interviewee’s closing statment. 

`Turnkey Tyranny’

What is the price willingly paid

When freedom and liberty is stolen away?

By forces that impose their sanctioned goals,

Regardless of the broader public price toll.


Incipient, insidious government surveillance policy

Contrived to impede malicious terrorist atrocity

Purchased by acquiescent public consent

Propagandized as injury or loss to life, to prevent


As new generations become calloused to the intrusion

The greater will be `Big Brother’ policy infusion

Global society made impotent through complacency

To potential One World Government’s `turnkey tyranny’.
