Lie Still - Poem by Edwina Reizer

How simple it is for some to lie still
and close their ears for they've lost the will
to object or reject
any unconscionable act.
Much easier to take the blue pill.

For the red pill will alert you. Don't want that
for your ears will hear and know where you're at.
You're in a place where fools
make all the rules
and turn up the thermostat.

It burns up your brain
and has you remain
at the mercy of their will.
Much easier to take the blue pill.
It's much easier to just lie still.
