Think Twice Before You Record

Planes of reality


Think twice

Before you record


They can linger and wait

Until you let them in


“we lift you up

To take you down”

They once told me

Now it’s getting late

And I’m hearing

A whispery voice

Speaks into my ear

They seem like

Invisible dictators

They seem like

Master sociopaths

Always trying

To get their audible boot

On your throat

Wielding a false scepter

Of their warped personalities


Tyranny here

Has a very real voice

And a voice

And another voice

And then another


When you record

You could let them in


I learned this

The hard way


Think twice

Before you record


Why put at risk

All those quiet nights
