Why Watch Me?

What if our loved ones live somewhere abroad?
What if our online friends are a bit odd?
What if our feet like jumping the big blue?
What if our eyes delight in culture too?
What if we work in the margins and cracks?
What if we live by the skin on our backs?
What if we asked for your help that one time?
What if we were falsely framed for a crime?
What if you know we have dreams to spark change?
What if you see us protest something strange?
What if you see a weird rant or ramble?
What if you know that we like to gamble?
When and why do you watch? What do you see?
And why would you take an interest in me?

Knowing how much data the government easily plunders
can certainly make one wonder whose watch they are under.
