I wrote this poem after reading the George Orwell book of the same name




That impossible year, which we dreaded is here

When Big Brother would rule our existence

All part of the plan, not devised by one man

But at our own very insistence


A Rebel inside. Our true thoughts we hide

In a box tucked away in the attic

As intelligence sinks, to a cruel savage brink

Behind veils of the loyal fanatic


Policing our mind. We fear what they’ll find

And bring up the veil in great haste

But it turns out instead, we’re easily read

Thought-crimes are all over our face


It also is clear, our children we fear

War games they have learned very well

Playing hide-n-go-seek, they spy-n-go-speak

To Big Brother. Our secrets they tell


Truth and Family, was the reality

But the Party subordinates the truth

For its own power gain. We fight, but in vain

As it corrupts and brainwashes our youth


We should just give in, for Big Brother will win

Surely it can’t hurt all that much

Propagandas’ our feed. The Party fills our need

Our Tele-screens keep us in touch


If we constantly train, seal this truth in our brain

And are confident there is no other

Then the Party will bless loyal ones who confess:

“I trust and I love my Big Brother”

"We should just give in, Big-Brother will certainly win"

Come on down and look around,
It's 1984 all over again.

Reviewed by Joanna Leone
This is a great poem! It is true that there are signs of Orwell's book, 1984. For instance, there are many cameras, video devices and other ways that the government or others can find out so many things about each person. Yet, we still live in a great country and I still have a love for our country! There are times when big brother watches out for us, yet in a day and age of identity theft and fraud, there are many people who have access to our information for their own benefit.

Yet, even in all of that, we still live in the best country in the world.
