Munday on Monday: Data breach

We shred, encode, and I suppose, we take all necessary steps to zealously guard our personal data. Oh, and then we get into the supermarket checkout lane...

Data breach

We guard our passwords lest they’re hacked

(As gibberish, they can’t be cracked.)

We shred our mail, and then insist

To join the no-call numbers list.

So with precautions undertaken

Our data should be safe, a haven.

And yet, in crowded checkout line

We loudly state (as if it’s fine)

The number of our phone. We tell

The address of our home, as well.

Our privacy we guard, I reckon;

But not, it seems, when discounts beckon.

Don Munday
