We Don’t Want That!
Violence is a poor excuse
No winners there!
To be avoided and condemned
But a divergent point of view
Or opinion that’s not kosher,
That might get someone in a stew!
Bring on the silks and defamation
And let’s not forget the Government
They’ll bring you into line
With either a hefty litigation
Or you’ll be looking for a new job!
Yeh, that one works every time
Isn’t that what an insult is?
A comment that upsets someone.
Are we to live without insults?
Always believing that we are always right?
Life without debate?
Then goodbye to democracy
Hello facial recognition, Border Force,
Facebook likes and CCTV
And a phone that sends uncalled-for messages
Where’s my privacy?
Yes welcome to the matrix
Come and join the queue
We have genetic engineering
To produce what we desire
Guided by big brother and the media
As to what we should aspire
Something normal that fits the mould
Certainly not something different
Or dare I say bold.
Which raises the question
Just who is “we”?
Enough! No stupid questions!
Work hard and put your head down
Don’t think too much
Get your degree!
It’s not who you know , we’re always told
Isn’t this the land of the free?
( my computer just told me the on-line editor is going to F*ck up my layout and “help” me
by “improving” it)
Forget about a fair go!
In this land of i-phone isolation
Where only a few seem to get ahead
(Unless you’re” in the know”)
Of their appalling situation
And when the time comes, vote sensibly
No party-line voters please!
