individuality. the only way to survive is conformity; no one gains recognition through challenging rules! although resisted, you are encouraged by obedience. it's just awful to oblige solely by constant pressure to be new, but please break out of thinking it's prohibiting to be you. the system is simply choosing what's best for the majority. it's ineffective when a single force is thinking for himself. it's time one starts following a mold...
now read backwards
I'd like to give credit to a poet with the initials/name (I'm not sure) ron. ron's poem named Perfect Inadequacy (about embracing flaws) inspired me to create a poem with the same structure, but focusing on embracing one's uniqueness.
ron, if you see this, thank you so much for your poetic prowess!!
Stop letting corporate news tell lies to your children Unless you want to continue to be blind to the truth That it isn’t a Republican or a Democrat It’s both of them Who are both feeding lies to your children Maybe a few are good here and there But that’s such an off chance And they’ll shut them up before they can spit anything real out Ron Paul tried his best But freedom isn’t what they want for you Unless freedom from choice counts As we allow more intense regulation Coming from this corrupt business Oh…
I wasn’t talking about a company I was talking about your government The ones who thieve from you all the time With a thing called ‘taxation’ And have infinite funds to use as they please Especially if they want to fund another war Where they send the people who fund that war Out to fight that war How beautiful is that?
But continue to vote for the man using the word ‘hope’ or ‘change’ Like Obama did But what if I told you he is just George W And instead has the symbol of donkey Instead of an elephant?
And no I won’t allow this structure to take me over Just look at this poem It has no order or rules Because I don’t let the government tell me what the **** to do Keep on listening to them as they yell at the big business But the funny thing is They are working with that big business every single day Most of these so-called politicians will continue To not give a **** about me or you So maybe you should take a stand And vote for self-governance Or at the very least Look into new ideas Because Democrats and Republicans are a limiting force And will never strive for radical change They’ll continue to melt the *** As I sit and strive for change With massive militant poetry
Think for yourself they'll tell you But you'll never agree Because you want no liberty Even though it is all or nothing, A willingness to die by those values But they'll tell you that you're incompetent Or special while they steal another set of data Quietly from the cradle And you'll think that's fine and okay As you watch another show and simply lay.
They want you to be politically minimal and vote the same Because it is cause for a simple aim, To vote for everything to be as it once was, The counter will buzz as the state lives on, The surface level is easy and quick and enjoyable, Just 140 characters of freedom are enough, Everything else is far too hard Because propaganda is still easy even in democracy Despite the fact that it's all ******* hypocrisy, We'll never be free until you're willing to see That in the empire of lies truth is treason.
