Homeland Security has announced it has a new scanner that can tell if you are hiding something, or plotting something, or have the merest thought they think suspicious just by scanning you. They call it Biometrics, and it works without you even knowing you are being bio’ed, or metricked, or something. You stand in line, tapping your feet impatiently, and the machines are probing your every breath, your heart rate, your eye blinks, your skin temperature, indeed, your every thought. They hope that in the next ten years it will even work on Arabs.



My lungs, my retinas, my heart

My breathing and my brain

All scanned before I can depart

I think I’ll take the train
