Writers' Showcase

by Michael S. Collins

Aliens are coming for you
Serpents live in your shoe
Neighbours will kill you in your sleep
Dentists devour you in comas deep
Governments plan to murder you
Yes – we have terrorists, that is true
And they're out to get you!

The plane you are on is going to crash
The train you are on is about to smash
Television and games make our children violent
Everyday actions and our elders are silent
Now, I pray, prepare for the sting
Is paranoia not a wonderful thing?
