gently apply censure



voices of reason require dull plugs
accept no commotion from liberal mugs
look at that hole issuing cries,
spilling effective advice
SHUT IT UP!!!

our dream world is perfect
avoiding complaints is effective, it's working!
let's all maintain the order of things,
enjoy your delicate drinks
of silence and 'moderation'!
it's ok to clap

Official notice: guideline approves of ovation

in order to piss off the logic of all
we're posting the good, or nothing at all! :)
who cares about your petty complaints?
yeah-yeah-yeah! it poors when it rains...
the 'zero' of pains from phantomous jerks?
still, don't fix a thing that (somehow) still works
and smile, you bastards, just smile!
----------------

on a personal note, in a films of the forties
i've seen such a censure and its rigor mortis
silence of truth - societal vermin
didn't get much of what was said,

narration was in german...

p.s.

dedicated to all masters of a system that shows obvious signs disease
and their failure to show character despite numerous callings
