POETRY10:”POWERPLAY: YOU AGAINST US”

You think we’re just herds of sheep
herded here and there, locked in cages for yours to keep
You treat us like little, gullible kids
Why do you act like we’re all so stupid?

Do this; don’t do that
Be good; don’t be bad
We get it, but we don’t think you’re ready
facing us who question, comment, and criticise your every twisted policy

You think you’re the lion
Roar all you like, but you’re more like toothless canine
You think all of us are easily subdued and submissive
Sooner or later, something’s got to give

Don’t just give us orders
We’re sick to death of your empty holler
If you can’t be the good example,
then who are you to tell us that we’re nothing but trouble?

We’ve known it all along; you’ve never really been ready
You’ve already embraced the comfort of being the bully
Keep telling us what to do, believing we’re incapable of thinking
Oh, you have no idea such hatred you could really bring

What’s your next move?
Looks like you still need a lot to prove
that you have more power than we do
and we have no choice but to willingly obey you

Watch out.
We have many packs of wolves, lurking in our crowds.
