It’s not 1984 anymore,
but it’s beginning to look like it.
Government,
what are you about?

Benedict Arnold
would salute us with a nod,
wink-wink, and he’d smile, a
Cheshire Cat hoping for reelection.

And citizenry –
where are your righteous cries
for right and reform,
when and where they’re needed?

Give government direction,
show them the way,
and work to make it so.
We’ve done it all before,

“…by the People, for…”

1984 ?

I wholeheartedly agree. Why are our voices not being raised and our concerns being heard?
