FIRST INTERN

Freedom is natures lore… it is the path of life
Yet man courts his laws to write humans rights
See freedom stop
Have all locked
Progression blocked
Like ill-fated balloons topped up
Your deflated life goes pop pop
Now you know it is all an inflated mock up
Just flock to fleece in stock
Exchange before all drop
Quick to shear the value off this lot
Never whip the cream of the crop

The compliance and harm money brings; allow others to hold you by a cord
All in the pen, dents to our pride as some refused to wield the mighty sword
Thoughts knocked down because we succumbed to what we fought
There are those who stood true for something
Others lie about the reasons why they did nothing at all
We all experience fear of some sort
For some ‘cowardice’ is a default
Sheltered within… their civil lies weighs whilst forever safely cowering
Without word or deed for their will, won’t fight for that which their very oh beast city is devouring
