Always had the Obsession he was being followed
even before the digital generation
that familiar figure whom he had seen before
not certain this was his imagination
a click on the phone as if somebody listening
an uncomfortable sensation inside
even in his own home that object had moved
thought must be getting confused!
Atheist in his beliefs so no angel was by his side
yet felt the tingle of uncertainty
as if eyes were peering at him twenty four seven
over a couple of years it was constant
technology had begun to advance at a brisk rate
intrusion of privacy a big debate!
Became bedeviled that some agency was listening
checking his data did not feel free
being a conspiracy theorist was often outspoken
many colleagues had been shut down
just told the truth of what he saw in this society
but this simply increased his anxiety!
Filled with doubt about everything around him
sat one night staring very attentively
at his laptop screen when an image appeared
several days later he was discovered
by his worried girlfriend absolutely stone dead
face hideously distorted and crushed head!
What really had been watching and ended his life?
Never an investigation to ease pain or strife!
