Little bird
upon the branch
you have no
National Insurance
number and that
is beautiful.
You fly, live die
and cannot be arrested.

Thanks for both, the image and the poem. The photograph is splendid, the poem rather clever, I thought.

Jim Murdoch said...

Yeah, I agree with Dave.

It's a small muse but the implications can be quite far reaching.

I really do fear for the future with the increased security and a highly mechanised bureaucracy that people will, as paranoiac as it may sound, become enslaved with the social infrastructure.

Viva the flying bird!
