The 'Poem A Day' Project - Day 51 - Poem by Flying Lemming

You can say what you want, just not so anyone can hear
You can live how you want, just not while living here
You can criticise those in power, just never out loud
You can be an individual, as long as you stay in the crowd
You can have your own opinions, just keep them to yourself
You can do just what you want, if you’ve got the wealth
You can choose to look however you want, that is very true
But if you look too different then we wont talk to you
You’ve the chance to be you, if you are like them and me
Why aren’t you smiling, you should be glad to be so free
