If the voices betray me

They put an implant in my head so they can listen to my mind. One bad thought is all it takes. Think a ‘crime,’ defy them, pick the wrong daydream, and it’s back to that cell, throw away the key.

Reckon I deserve it? You wait. If this works, everyone gets them. They’ll come in your sleep, give you the jab and you wake with it in your brain.

At least they told us. You might never know. Serve you right for sitting by.

Don’t get mad though… they might be listening. That’s all it takes – one bad thought.
