Dystopia Distraction

I am all weird & reactive
Running out into traffic 
Because somebody
On the sidewalk said
A mugger was coming
And now
I am starting to believe that 
I would make 
An excellent citizen of Oceania
I would scream the loudest
At that monstrous screen
And, if this were Fahrenheit 451,
I would spend my days
At the demolition parks
Smashing everything
With great enthusiasm
Then I would go home
Put my earbuds on
And weep
And if I roamed the
Polluted allies of The Sprawl
I would, at best,
Be a 
Meat puppet
And, at worst,
Linda Lee.
