Newspeak (inspired by 1984)

30 Jan

Inspired by reading Orwell’s 1984 and thinking about the modern political jargon we hear, a Newspeak for 2013.


All I hear is Newspeak,
Every hour,
every day, every week.
One nation,
War on terror, negative growth the jargon of our time,
To be a Deficit denier is a thoughtcrime.
Skivers/strivers/shirkers/workers our two minute hate,
Words with no meaning they demonstrate,
Vacuous jargon, babble, swallow it you should,
Big Brother can never be anything other than,
