REBELS

I am 64 and loves cats, rock music, and horror fiction and poetry






Rebels cannot be tolerated
When they’re trying to spread the truth,
They question all the Leader’s lies
And dare to ask for proof.

Rebels must be held in check
By force, if it has to be,
If violence is the only way
We’ll use it to maintain harmony.

Rebels cannot be allowed to speak out
And question political correctness,
By contradicting the Leader’s lies
They spread discord and unrest.

The rebels must be brought into line
By force, if it’s the only way,
For rebels endanger society
When they question lies of the State.

Rebels have got to be punished
For daring to question the regime,
For whenever they question the State’s lies
They’re guilty both of deed- and thought crime.

THE END
