Managed Democracy

Walls crumbled

And faceless fortunes trembled

Setback to be sorted

Come what may

Ideologues with money

And a purpose

Beware democracy

When big boys play

 

Acronyms that hide

The bigger picture

Analysed to target

Prejudice

How elections swayed

By our own data

Now question why and how

We’ve come to this

 

Across their chess board

Watch the right-wing rising

Authoritarian

Their links in sight

Make haste

For walls of separation

Foreshadow yet

The longer, darker nights

 

What say you

To covert operations

Psychometric management

Bulls-eyed

What say you

To hooded cloak and dagger

Proclaiming there are reasons

Why they spy

 

Is this for safety

Management of terror

Profiles that will keep you

Safe in bed

Or is this to trawl on populace

Endeavour

To manipulate and fix

What’s in all heads
