MAGNAVOX SURVEILLANCE

MAGNAVOX SURVEILLANCE

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror




            I know I tell you this instant         

         I am under surveillance  

          My life is being recorded indefinite

                       Every movement                

Private or ordinary

Including this moment

Every event

Big or insignificant

Without my consent

There is no instant

When i am alone

Only deep thoughts I no longer own

I am sure

I feel their stare

And Every hour they dare

Can't you hear

The transmissions and communication

That high supersonic pollution

Sending a command to their camera the observer

Sometimes it’s near and sometimes it’s somewhere further

And then I hear them, their inside the interior

I cannot explain

Or tell you when it came

How I missed them inside

But you now they always hide

What is sharp and clear

Is the camera they put in here

Right there in the magnavox television

An ordinary tv became their mission

And of course it still works with normal precision

No matter what action I take

It’s now in an unbreakable state

WHAT DID YOU SAY?

Don’t look at me in that STUPID unbelievable way

You can’t conceive why, I won't just leave and be free

As much as I hate the show they see

I would rearrange the furniture down to the mantel

Or even change the channel

to leave through the front door is not possible

The problems that it will intelle

Outside, your crazy it's just short of suicidal

Don’t you understand they are watching every intention

And each direction

To plan and abandon

a walk out the door would terrorize

                                   I would be seen by all the eyes

     The eyes in the sky

         You can't deny

           the satellites

Catching everything like it's their right

                                 Dominating the outside day and night

Pointed directly at My hidden front door

                             And don't get me started on the store’s

Once the night is in its darkest hour

I have tried to leave regardless their power

and walk right out no longer the coward

That is what all the plans are for

I must make it out all my thought’s implore

I extend my hand and keep my eyes on the floor

                             Holding the knob I begin the chore

                                     then as if it were a signal

Yes!! a secret signal

Something Tucked deep inside to conceal

A dangerous secret

like a man in the shadows wearing the blackest hat

he conceals all the private things from my closet

The phone rings before I can even see the welcome mat

On a stunned level

It's always the same devil

I am obliged to acknowledge the scoundrel

We are immersed in his timing

An old move that is still so very cunning

And a silence oh so staggering

my fear disorienting

They are listening

                            I pick up the phone ignoring the radio source  

But a landline of course

Never touch a cellular they are the worst

The G P S will never let you go

Cashiers at all the supermarkets will have a window

Strange ladies at the grocer will be calling me by the name only I know

frozen with fear

The Receiver is on my ear

There is no one there

it's always the same dreaded silence

The attempt to scare me in alliance

 Must they listenin for every performance

I know, it's them again

In here and on the other end

I am telling you I know and it's evident

They are recording my every movement

I am under surveillance

                  I know

too much inspiration murdered you on a stage that should be yours. you should own the stage...but you bestowed much power to 'them'. 'magnavox surveillance' is good. i like it. see below a draft...just trying to suffocate the inspiration so something victorious can emerge. Only you can perfect it


I know I tell you this instant
I am under surveillance
My life is being recorded indefinite
Every movement
Private or ordinary
Big or insignificant
Without my consent

There is no instant
When i am alone
Only deep thoughts I no longer own
Transmissions and communication
That high supersonic pollution
Sends a command to their camera the observer
Right there in the magnavox television
An ordinary tv became their mission

No matter what action I take
It’s now in an unbreakable state
I am seen by all the eyes
The eyes in the sky
And can't deny
the satellites

… (re-write something about the door)…

I pick up the phone ignoring the radio source
But a landline of course
Never touch a cellular they are the worst
The G P S will never let you go
Cashiers at all the supermarkets will have a window
Strange ladies at the grocer will be calling me by the name only I know
frozen with fear
The Receiver is on my ear
There is no one there
it's always the same dreaded silence
The attempt to scare me in alliance
I know, it's them again
In here and on the other end
I am telling you I know and it's evident
They are recording my every movement
I am under surveillance
I know

I've had a lot of thoughts like this lately because I recently wrote an essay about personal privacy. I knew that we were all being surveillanced to a point, but my research really opened my eyes to the severity. It can be hard to feel okay being myself when I know that my every move is being saved to some weird file in a heavily guarded government building :/

Its too good. But as per the topic it's not satirical. But, let me tell you something , its much better than that. It's THRILL and CLIFF HANGER... amazing work . Keep it up.

One of the best verbalized versions of paranoia I've ever seen. I got pretty paranoid myself from reading this...meaning it's an amazing write, skillfully written.

Thank you for sharing.

It reads as if I was watching a live realty show. Amazingly written. This is thrilling and mysterious to read. Technology is slowly acquiring our privacy.
These lines just left me speechless in a positive way...
You can't deny the satellites
Catching everything like it's their right
Dominating the outside day and night
Pointed directly at My hidden front door
keep sharing

reminded me of the old zenith t v my mom and dad had,when you turned it off a black spot in the middle would follow you from left to right,i always thought it was watching us,,hell maybe it was

this is very cool & creative and i truly enjoyed it. we live in the technology age and 'big brother' is watching'. there is a price to be paid for everything. they don't call it "the b**b tube" for nothing. our culture tries to control us. you have a great satirical commentary here. it really is just like a drug - most people can''t go without it now, like coffee. we think we're doing the watching but they're watching us & turning us into drones. great job! :)
