Poems in English

SMILE, YOU ARE ON CCTV

SMILE, YOU ARE ON CCTV

Even the charity shops boast of the surveillance

Mr Average is caught on camera a hundred times a day

To provide unending footage for reality TV

But in a decade where will we all be?

Big Brother’s eye will see our every step,

The blink of every eye, the tears we cry.
