abuse of power unconstitutional attack on freedom
re-militarise country crackdown on dissidents
target petty crimes a normalisation of surveillance culture

succeed doing the opposite EU withdrawal once more in flux

mounds eventually infrequency melt gradual seepage impact

rooms of hardened researchers images of swirling clouds
drawn gasps close pass over storms at magnetic poles
ideas incorrect and maybe naïve dynamo system not deep
