Seeing the blue line appear under my words
as I type
I wonder who is keeping me in line,
telling me forthrightly I have misspelled a word
Telling me how to say something differently
When maybe what I am saying is how I want to say it.
Can I go on and leave the line there?
Going boldly where no one has gone before
into an unknown future?
Who is seeding the world with this correctness?
Is there a master-mind?
A data collector?
How many errors will I be allowed before
my Microsoft Word is shutdown
and I am hauled off to sit again in spelling class?
Fingered to be re-grammered?
Blue lines are appearing everywhere,
Not just on my screen,
but on the streets,
dressed in riot gear
They seem to mean business.
Blue lines have got me wondering.
