To be a genuine self
Push the tribe away.
Yet you’re a social man
A player in the team.
Yet social order isn’t
What it seems.
More likely its
An excuse to put one down;
To harbour control
Over the individual man.
Contribution is the impression
Held above our heads
But what is meant
Is oppression instead.
I want to help
Them stand tall
But that means
Accepting the powers
And their all.
So instead I do
What I can;
And try to save
The smile of independent man.

    1. I think the most recent and obvious manifestation is the vision of ‘the big society’ , a well thought out propaganda tool.
      Glad to see I’m not on my own perceiving the situation this way. 🙂
