Mitya Shostak chapter 1 . 2/20/2003
There are some cases in poetry where repetition of a phrase or two can be very effective in getting the point across. However, when the entire body of the piece consists of exact repetitions, that's what the reader notices and little else-particularly when phrases like "resistance is futile" and "trust no one" are movie cliches.

This would be much more effective if you explained why these phrases related to September 11th, 2001; if you made clear what makes resistance futile, why deception is frequent. Right now, this could be about pretty much anything.

Try filling in a stanza around each of your repeated phrases or something. That would make it more readable and more meaningful.
