Mute, Moot

Hold Tight ~ Philip Brent Harris


This computer which consumed my life

Nibbled away in small bits, large bytes.

It jabbed, twisted as it stuck in the knife;

If only Ben Franklin never flew the kite.

A world away, you read what I’ve written.

This strange interface provides translation.

The powers that be would rather we fit in;

Beware, they listen in their secret station.

Wait, they just told me I’d better be quiet,

Loud bang on the door, the heel of a boot.

Right now they suggest I tell you to try it;

If they cut out my tongue, it’s mute moot.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
