A trap I see
One set for me
Big brother in society
Detesting minds still floating free
I stumble in and can't get free
Is Slavery my destiny?

Now so confined
They steal the mind
And educate the bits they find
All novel thoughts are left behind
My destination reassigned
All Freedom lost as dead lead blind

Now cast in mold
Where heart is cold
Ideas imprinted thoughts controlled
Mortgage work and wealth take hold
Mad zealots scream, “do as you're told”
And people's lives are bought and sold

The prophets reign
Control my brain
I'm just a puppet, daren't complain
Of treatment in the states domain
But there's a fragment, tiny grain
Of poet, that they can't constrain

This rebels streak
Makes me a freak
And though it's light is dim and weak
It counters lies with truths critique
The message that we're all unique
And frees me from the ruling clique

Hiya, Tony. Unfortunately, signing on to be a fully paid up member of "society" brings with it a collective psychoneurosis.

My blow off valve and escape from that particular monster is,,
lashings of Guinness,
a shrug of the shoulders,
the obligatory scratching of my arse
and a kip.

Good liddle piece you have here that bobs along with much aplomb !!

Obi.

( "education" - a word to be laughed at ! )

Thanks Obi
I've tried being a good little servant, but when I see indoctrination masquerading as education, I just can't keep my big mouth shut.
Bless you
Tony
