Every word controlled,
Every phrase scrutinized,
every sentence analyzed ,
by agents of the system, of which I am a part ,
well , technically , at least .
Namesake though , just for the records .
I’m scared to order my neurons to flow ,
to open that device of communication ,
it’s been stagnated for too long , far too long.
Inspiring love,hatred and murder all at once
all within an instant ,like those neon flashes.
Scared that it would inspire a tirade,
unleashed against me like Satan himself on earth .
Opinions hindered,ideas roadblocked by “agents of progress”
I laugh silently , progress , haha .
Fear casts its spell , all aboard the silent train .
We think all we want , but the words never flow ,
Like one sock out of two , pointless .
When the word spreads and rebellion ignites,
Don’t blame me , you’ve been adding powder kegs
dynamite and C4 , a heady mix waiting.
When “progress” gets wind of it ,
We’re clamped down , jailed and silenced.
Freedom , for me , is not the word as such
You can shut me up , kill me and skin me alive
But the idea of no man over you
Universal appeal , bitch .
Being controlled , puppet like , not my cuppa tea .
So when dissent is expressed
maybe in ways that Gandhi wouldn’t approve of
dear puppet master , don’t you trod me under or push me down .
Puppet master,your end is near.
A screaming death , your parting gift, for years of silence.
No second thoughts , put mercy aside .
Wake up and beg for mercy , smell the whiskey .
Press that snooze button , and you will wake up to a sight ,
the exact antithesis of your utopia .
I guess I’ve made the meaning I wanted to convey pretty clear throughout this effort of mine.Freedom , not in the sense of doves flying around and people hugging each other , but the idea of no man upon you. And yes , some lines in here are based upon the Arab spring revolution of last year …that was a major inspiration in penning this down .
I am proud of the fact that people are finally standing up to what is right , however small that change might be . I’m proud of you , not the facebook version of 1 like=1 salute proud , but really , standing up for what you trust in is something I have deep regard for .
