They! ! ! - Poem by nicola burkett

They reach into your mind, and pull it out, so you -
STOP thinking.
They seal your lips together so you -
Stop talking.
They fill your lungs with water so you -
STOP breathing.
They cut out your heart so you -
STOP loving.
They remove your soul so you -
STOP living
They are the your parents.
They are the Goverment.
What ever happend to Freedom and Justice for All? ? ? ? ?

    Yep. But remember: It happened to your parents first. Otherwise, how could they learn to do it to you? Good observation to put in prose. (Report) Reply
