USA

Waiting in line to be frisked, told to take my shoes off, or more.

I wait and watch.

I shake my head at the extravagance, expense and tediousness of the security measures.

Wow, welcome to the “Land of the Free”!

How did it get to be this way?

Oh, terrorism, they say.

(Boston strong and secure… or something similar…)

Yes, terrorism, I reflect, and the pieces come together

as I realize that all of this suits the state’s agenda:

power and control,

over you and me, everyday people, our souls…

they don’t care about our safety (they’d send us to war & death in a flash!)…

They only care about power and control.

And the terrorism thing is the perfect cover for them to exert over-the-top measures, to monitor and control

you, me, us.

And we let them.

Fear and bullshit rules.

I take off my shoes and do as I’m told.

(To such a state of excellence we have evolved!)
