Peekaboo, they’re watching you:
The streets have eyes, the walls have ears;
They track and log your every move;
They own your hopes, they craft your fears.
They count the money in your bank;
They know which way you’d like to vote;
They filmed that private cyber-wank;
They scrutinised that secret note.
Rhymes Against Humanity
The poem ‘Destiny: Dystopia’ features in Modern Madness, the new book by Ross Adamson.
This storming debut collection is both a masterclass in high-octane, high-precision rhyming verse and a timely, trenchant indictment of early 21st century society.
Modern Madness is vehement and rebellious, scintillating and streetwise, eloquent and insightful, and buzzing with expressive verve and poetic charm. Adamson fearlessly hits emotive topics head on: sometimes sharpshooting with a laser-guided dart to the heart; sometimes channeling a blazing powder keg of righteous anger.
This book exemplifies contemporary poetry at its piquant and polemic best: It is spirited, quotable, memorable, highly thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining throughout.
