On All Accounts (standard:poetry, 85 words)

When you check computer accounts, do you wonder who's watching you?

One button pressed 

To my distress 

By wandering eyes 

To some impress 

The deed that follows 

Ever grievous 

Thieving matters 

Now reveal us 

Accounts of person 

Wanton peril 

Thinking hidden 

Inhumed barrel 

But eyes deceiving 

Follow after 

Digging up 

Misguided laughter 

Is nothing sacred 

This machine 

Hiding nothing 

Most obscene 

Is any dollar 

Left to prey 

Legal tender 

Naught to say 

How are we helpless 

Captive too 

On open sea 

We never knew 

Spies are watching 

Now in slew 

A fiery wall 

That must ensue
