District Seventeen

My parents didn't want to.
They said 'He'll lose his
Privacy, but he'll get
Healthcare benefits,
An education, citizenship!'
So they agreed when
I was born to insert
The chip into my
Brain.
Now I am monitored
Whatever I do
Whatever I think.
But I hate it.
That's why I
Now think in
Bursts so the
Chip will find it
Harder to trace
My thoughts.
We are growing,
The Renegades of
District Seventeen.
But I only
Have thirty
Lines to expose
The cruel,
Barbaric regime
Of District
Seventeen
...Damn!
