In This Nightmare (found nocturna)

Leave a comment

2017 by Hello World

In this nightmare, war is peace.
Will this end?
Will this cease?

In this nightmare, freedom is slavery.
Will we bend
to the unsavoury?

In this nightmare, ignorance is strength.
Will it portend
pain of great length?

 

(second half of each first line derives from Orwell’s 1984)
