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
