The Privacy Fallacy


"Trespassers will be prosecuted"
"Do not disturb"
"Beware of Dogs"
Well, some of these signs 
along with two or more locks on your door. 
And a sky high fortress of walls,
four or more;
Is all you have to ward those
eyes in the sky.
But your windows
are as bare naked as
their peering eyes.
With blinds rolled up
and curtains slid to corners,
they have the best view 
to your so called private suite.
After all, privacy is a fallacy.
For the fortress you assume 
you live in
Is nothing but 
the Emperor's new clothes.
