    help me with my homework please!

    I need a poem that i can easily compare to the novel farenheit 451. I'm looking for something about censorship or big brother government kind of thing. I've been looking for about an hour and havent found squat... If anyone has any ideas it'd be a great help.

    No restrictions on length or style it just has to be a copy written work.

    When you require nothing, you get nothing; when you expect nothing, you will find nothing; when you embrace nothing, all you will have is nothing.

    Here you go..

    Poem

    Bertolt BRECHT
    Poem titled "The Bookburning" (Die Bücherverbrennung)
    German dramatist and poet (1898-1956)

    "When the regime ordered
    Books with dangerous knowledge
    To be burned in public and everywhere
    Oxen were forced to pull, carts with books
    to the bonfires, one of the persecuted poets
    discovered one of the best
    studying the list of the burned
    disconcerted, that his books were forgotten.
    He rushed to his desk, flying on wings of rage
    and wrote a letter to the the authorities.
    Burn me! he wrote with a quick stroke
    Burn me! don't do this to me! Do not spare me!
    Have I not always reported the truth in my books?
    Yet now you treat me as were I a liar!
    I command you: Burn me! "
