1984 Revisited

Shades of ’84 ring clear;
history changed – a rule by fear.
When little men with little minds
rewrite with what their little mind finds
fallacies will rule the day
and truth will be an unknown way.
Censorship will always be
a thing abhorrent to the free.
Sanitising our own past
is a fascist shadow cast.
When history’s changed bit by bit
we’re all the lesser because of it.
