Help Help

Help Help the Paranoids are after me
They follow me every where I go
I must be a threat and will not let me be
They want to know everything that I know

Help Help the paranoids are listening
They are tapping all of my calls
I hear the clicks and their whispering
And catch them watching me from behind the walls

Help Help the Paranoids are watching
They try to catch everything that I do
Checking out all the people I have been seeing
And opening every letter I am sent too

Help Help the Paranoids are searching
They think they will find something in my trash
Not liking the free speech I have been preaching
They have been trying to plant a stash

Help Help the Paranoids are worried
They don’t like the books that I have read
It does not matter that they are well published
They don’t want thoughts of peace and liberty in my head

Help Help the Paranoids are getting scarred
They don’t like the beard that I have grown
Or that I wear a beanie on my head
And can’t handle the things I said on the phone

Help Help the Paranoids are freaking
They know that I made a complaint
About the phone tapes and their peaking
I was told that it made their boss faint

Help Help the Paranoids have gone crazy
They are sticking cameras up everywhere
I think their minds must be a bit hazy
The look in their eyes is just a constant stare

Help Help the Paranoids have lost the plot
They haven’t noticed while they have been watching me
Someone else has stolen all the country has got
And they will get away with it Scott free

Help Help the Paranoids are hiding
From the fact that they are all going mad
Ordered around by Politicians who have been stealing
The House the sink and everything that we had

While all the worlds’ security has been focused on ‘The War On Terror" , they haven’t noticed all the shifty deals etc. that have wipped out everyones wealth. How much has the politicians and bankers wealth gone down and where has all that money really gone ??

    Hope you aren’t as paranoid in real life. It would be so exhausting. Ask someone you trust to be responsible for making sure you are safe. Hope this poem is fiction (with some truth in it) otherwise you’ll go mad.

    I was wondering what happened to all the money too. I think finance is tied up with confidence, once the banks & major corporations loaned out too much money & couldn’t get it back their confidence went down the gurgoler with the devalued money.

  • So true. Not much we can do until confidence returns. Thanks for your comment…
