Description:


This is a poem, believe it or not. Newspeak borrowed from 1984 in fact. Newspeak doesn't have "flow". Newspeak doesn't have room for distinction between words. Newspeak eliminates difference and thought.

for example
Newspeak = new language
old speak = old language
unquestion = answer
Unlife = death

I made these words up trying to keep to similar guidelines used in 1984


Newspeak



Newspeak, the newspeak
Shows all forms of a word
Unconfuse me, I don't understand
Unquestion my question
Oldspeak, tell unlost it for me
Newspeak, the lazyspeak
Newspeak, the onlyspeak
Unlife to oldspeak
Life to newspeak
Unperson to oldspeak
Person to newspeak

To be free? Is Oldspeak
No newspeak word for 'to be free'
Slavery? Is oldspeak
Newspeak for slavery is Freedom

Peace is to be unpeace
Unpeace is to be at war, in oldspeak
Person is to exist, in newspeak
Unpeson is to not, in newspeak

Person to newspeak
Unperson to oldspeak

  I love 1984, it's my third favourite book in the world. This makes me laugh, to see the comments and see it out of my little paperback copy. I love it... Peace. -rue
