no_apologies: (Rem!)
I wrote two, although one might not be finished yet. I'm not sure, since I especially don't have a title for it.

The other however... Last week, I saw the 1956 version of the movie 1984, based on the novel by George Orwell. I thought about that movie and how it compares to the on-going insanity I've been on about. I felt inspired, and wrote this (harsh and sarcastic, yet spot on). ...If you don't know about this novel or film, you really should. It's a warning about a very bleak future for us all. 1984 of the most significant fictional works in the history of mankind!


Orwellian World

"In God We Trust" is to trust in greed.
There's so many things we need!
To be free is a dream.
Let it fall from our reach!

We love to hate,
As we fiercely debate.

Forget about thinking!
It's all a waste!
To live is to obey!
To live is to obey!

We are happy and safe!
We are happy and safe!

To live is to obey!
To live is to obey!

As long as we don't
Go against the law,
We'll be okay!
We'll be okay!

We can do what we want,
As long as we have cash.
We'll work hard enough
To avoid economy crash.

Our government knows
What's best for us!
No need to question them!
Gotta love their free stuff.
There's no harm meant!

Forget about thinking!
It's all a waste!
To live is to obey!
To live is to obey!

We are happy and safe!
We are happy and safe!

To live is to obey!
To live is to obey!

As long as we
Do as they say,
We'll be okay!
We'll be okay!

War is peace...
Freedom is slavery...
Ignorance is strength...

Long live Orwellian World!
Long live Orwellian World!




I handwrote parts of this with a red ink pen for emphasis. I wanted to keep that for here.
