2017

It was a bright cold day

in January,

and the clocks were striking

thirteen.

Big Brother stood above,

hands in the air,

preaching to the loyal choir

below.

War is peace.

Freedom is slavery.

Ignorance is strength.

Propaganda produced

to those who will

swallow the pill with pride.

Suicide.

War can be peaceful.

Freedom is never free.

Strength is knowledge.
