GUESTBOOK 132 (2015): “Mind Criminals” (by Stuart Vance & Kevin Keelan)

.

Oh, they knew about us…

found out about us early

through a double-agent

we took for an ally

and made our disastrous confidant.

Oh, we knew they knew about us.

They tapped our telephones

and sent us nasty unsigned letters.

Our messages of love

were confiscated in the mail

and placed in “EYES ONLY” dossiers

along with other pertinent information-

like our hobbies,

fears,

and shoe sizes.

We interfered-

and this was not to be tolerated.

So they fed us, like lettuce

into their ravenous computers

and asked their TechnoGod

how to be rid of us.

(How does one identify and destroy

Mind Criminals like us?)

Then, in blissful tickertape

their ElectroLord spoke

and gave them the inscrutable answer they sought:

SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS!

Thankfully,

we Mind Criminals know something they don’t.

We know

the Mind is mightier than the Number.
