Is It Dystopian Enough Yet?

A political opinion

I HATE Politics!
Winners and losers,
Division of minds.

Unmarked men
(are they all men?)
in unmarked vehicles.
Jackboots and masks
taking people from the street.
Does the shadow
of the Iron Heel
darken your sky?

A banana-republic democracy
on the horizon.
Conform or disappear.
There will be consequences
if you vote for the wrong ticket.

Are “re-education” camps
under the Dept. of Education?
Will we learn not to resist?

The Dictator of The Homeland
sets the rules and orders compliance
and enforcers enforce.
Slaves and prisoners
(which is which?)
work to maintain the Golden Palace.

Are we in dystopia yet?
