I am Big Brother

I am Big Brother and I spy on myself.

Calvinists and Jesuits love my supine posture.
I love self- abnegation and worship authority
I love ordeals and amazing rituals
I love the way that I think just the way they do.

The Gestapo and NKVD love my perfection.
I love my ability to reveal everything to everybody
I love the way that I conform and suppress myself
I love the way that I do this without torture.

There is no place for dungeons in our modern world,
Or, neighourhood surveillance teams. They’re
Rendered redundant by Facebook, Twitter and iPhone.
I’ve fallen in love with fascism.

I am Big Brother and I spy on myself.
