Please Leave Me Alone - Poem by Raj Arumugam

please leave me alone
I don’t want to think;
please leave me alone
I ‘m happy to be a slave


please leave me alone
I only want to be led;
please leave me alone
for I only want a book
that tells me what I should do


please leave me alone
for I’ve found what I need;
and it’s just so good
as others have done
all the thinking for you and me


please leave me alone
all I want are commandments;
please leave me alone
for I have all the instructions


please leave me alone
I’ve got all my answers;
please leave me alone
my masters
have expertly fixed my brain


and if you don’t leave me
alone now
I’ll call them in,
and I assure you,
they’ll gladly fix you
right and proper





so just leave me alone
for I’m well and content;
with the prescribed course
I’m saved,
and I’ve been assured,
I’m going to Heaven
where I’ll be an angel
with an unlimited supply
of ecstasy pills


so, I say,
please leave me alone
I don’t want to think;
please leave me alone
I ‘m happy to be a slave

    Hmmm...a little cynical for my taste, but you make your point quite well! I like the form and the repetition.

    Amen to that brother! God forbids thinking for yourself. Oh wait, isn't that the eleventh commandment they never talk about? (Report) Reply
