PICK, CHOOSE, AND REFUSE Poem by Wilfred Mellers

Pick, Choose, And Refuse

Written by: Wilfred Mellers Monday, September 6,2010 @ 12: 18 PM

They hate, debate, castrate, and then try to eliminate you

They dictate, humiliate, and try to penetrate you

They calculate, deliberate, delegate, and then frustrate you

They congregate, close the gate, and keep you off the great estate

They agitate, commensurate, hesitate, and deflate any of your achievements

They get high-rate, never letting you participate, and make you wait for an update

They truncate, terminate, and vacate the workplace

They narrate then locate a mandate that they notate for the people

Prices inflate with the excitement they create

On you they fixate and their words they filtrate

They want to make you an inmate or see you lay instate

They want to see you not participate so they convince you not to graduate

They hydrate while the disease planted will mutate and migrate

Bees no longer germinate, embryos no longer gestate, and we all become dead-weight

Wars they instigate to control the birthrate

Death and destruction was their classmates

Poison was the feast they ate

Eyes dilate as billions they donate to those who already have too much

The economy procrastinates and madness for goodness they equate

We tolerate as the world vibrates to the insanity these primates concentrate on

Redemption for mankind no longer waits

Rain-checks we except for our rebates

Ourselves we segregate for the truth we can’t separate

Words need not to translate for ourselves we are going to obliterate

The truth is never straight and the constitution they violate

Backwards the clocks rotate for their toilet’s they gold plate

Destroy to clean the slate as wars comes to a deadly stalemate

Recognition comes too late for the masses they didn’t hesitate to sedate
