Haiku: 1984

Disillusioned man
Tries to break dystopia
Is himself broken

"War is peace" they say
Big Brother is watching you
Doubleplusungood

Not Room 101!
No! Do it to Julia!
He loved Big Brother

Dodge K-Cars, Walkmans
Video tape, Mike Jackson
Orwell? Who is that?
Nlpnt

newspeak deletes words
if unneedful or ungood
haiku not so different

Imagine a boot
Stamping on a human face
To see the future.

And if I should slip
If my veil should ever fall
Big Brother awaits.
—Mimey

Big Brother watches
Yet all the appendices
Are in the past tense.

Two plus two is five
According to Big Brother
And always has been
Snarf

Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate!
Aw, hullo, Rab, it's yourself.
Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate! Hate!

There is peace in war
Happiness in slavery
Death in defiance

Two Plus Two Make Five
God is very powerful
Why do I think that?
—Pyrarson
