Yeah, I know - it's not really a poem -

But, it seems that the greatest preponderence of 'readers' here at AD tend to choose to read Poems, over other postings - ERGO, I LIED!





WHAT IF … ?

© - Tom Hyland - 01-14-09


WHAT IF … The Phone Company is OWNED by the Government?
WHAT IF … the CIA Controls it?
WHAT IF … Paranoia is Real?


WHAT IF … you access the Internet by phone. like I do?
WHAT IF … all that time Uploading and Downloading -
“THEY” are really Reading or Copying your Hard-Drive? Or Planting 'Bugs?'
WHAT IF … I AM RIGHT?


Sound Far-Fetched?


Remember The Geneva Convention Rules?
Remember Gitmo?
Remember Torturing?
Remember Illegal Wire-Taps?
Remember Habeas Corpus?
Remember The Patriot Act?
Remember 9-11 ?
Remember the Bin Laden Family was SPIRITED away on 9-12?


NOW - do I really sound like I’m LOONEY-TUNES?
Remember the Movie - Casino Royale?
The Original, where Woody Allen was the Nephew
Of James Bond, played by David Niven?
And the PHONE CO was behind it All?


Sound Too Damned Convenient?
PSHAW ! you might say?
Remember - “Truth is Stranger than Fiction”?


WHAT IF … Anyone Wanted to Take-Over a Country?
WHAT WOULD BE THEIR PRIMARY TARGETS?


WHAT IF … Communication went OUT?
WHAT IF … Transportation was Screwed-UP?
WHAT IF … Planes were GROUNDED?
WHAT IF … Electricity was CUT?


Remember the BLACK-OUTS?
Remember the BROWN-OUTS?
Remember that ONE COMPANY CAUSED IT?
Remember how California tried to SUE THEM?


NO PHONE CALLS - NO COMMUNICATION -
NO NEWS - NO RADIO - NO TELEVISION -
NO COMPUTERS - NO TRAFFIC SIGNALS -
NO ELECTRIC LIGHTS - NO A/C - NO HEAT -
NO ELEVATORS - NO GAS PUMPS WORKING -
TRAFFIC IN EVERY MAJOR CITY AT A STANDSTILL!
NO POLICE - NO FIREMEN - NO EMERGENCY SERVICES -


CHAOS - PANIC - STRESS - UNCERTAINTY - RIOTS - MOBS -
WHAT IF … You are Finally Getting the Picture?


Remember The Alamo?
Remember The Maine?
Remember Pearl Harbor?
Remember the Original Movie - “The Day The Earth Stood Still?
Remember the Original Radio Broadcast of
“WAR OF THE WORLDS”?
How convincing Orson Welles’ Voice caused PANIC?


WHAT IF … THIS ENTIRE SCENARIO WAS POSSIBLE?
WHAT IF … IT WAS TOTALLY AVOIDABLE?


WHAT IF … INDIVIDUAL AMERICAN CITIZENS WOKE UP?
AND - STOPPED ACTING LIKE STUPID SHEEP?
WHAT IF … YOU ACTUALLY CARED?
WHAT IF … YOU GOT OFF YOUR LAZY FAT DUFF -
AND ACTED RESPONSIBLY?
WHAT IF YOU STOOD UP ON PRINCIPLE?


WHAT IF … Guilty Officials were Impeached?
WHAT IF … Guilty CEO’s were Proscecuted?
WHAT IF … Lying Crooked Congress-Persons were
NOT Re-elected - and - HELD ACCOUNTABLE?
WHAT IF … THERE WAS A TWO-TERM LIMIT?
WHAT IF … LOBBYING WAS OUTLAWED?
WHAT IF … ALL OUR TROOPS WERE BROUGHT HOME?
WHAT IF … ALL OUR VETERANS WERE HONORED - AND - GIVEN ALL THE HELP AND BENEFITS THEY EARNED?


YEAH - YEAH - YEAH -
I KNOW -
WHAT IF … PIGS COULD FLY?


WHAT IF … You just put your Ear-phones back on MAX -
and ignored me - and - just go back to Sleep -
and stay Happier than a Pig in What-a-call-it?
DON’T FORGET YOUR LIPSTICK!


YEAH - THAT’S THE TICKET!
LEAVE ME ALONE!
I’D RATHER CRY IN MY BEER -
AND BITCH AND MOAN AND GROAN AND GRIPE!


BUT …


WHAT IF … I AM RIGHT?


DADDY - WHAT DID YOU DO IN THE WAR?


??????????

It's no longer a What If, my friend. Big Brother can see and hear and monitor almost anything we do these days. Drive around, and you'll spot cameras everywhere - on buildings, on lamp posts, on traffic signals; don't linger at the ATM machine too long and smile for the camera when you do; and only use Disposable Cell Phones!

PS Gotta log off my computer now, too - Bye!!
