Rat Race

We are all being told what to do,

programmed how to feel,

dare we voice opposition

we are forced to kneel.

Our thoughts are too dangerous

and will upset the status quo,

God help those who rise up

against this unseen foe.

We are told we better

know our place

for there can only be

one winner of this rat race.

So it is better keep our mouths shut

and do what we are told

unless we are content

to be left out in the cold.
