Sheep (poem)

I don’t believe in your rules of conformity

Rejecting your pathetic version of reality


I do not feel the need to be politically correct

I do not pretend to march to my own beat

I speak my mind. Simple and direct

I don’t see a world so simplistically neat


Refusing to follow your maddening precession

Dulled by responses that are automatic

I don’t believe your versions of life lessons

Confused by anything slightly erratic


You've stolen someone elses creed

Normality is a sickness

Conformity is weakness

Shoot the drummer and take the lead


Passion is derived of chaos

Freedom is a matter of perspective

Sucking in the nerve gas

From the mass majority collective

Can’t you see that it’s no longer effective?

That it’s time to seek a new directive


Stumbling through pathetic lives

Never knowing what true freedom derives

Free from the persecution of those who would (and will always) follow

Fighting the rules that they force you to swallow




"Be yourself; everyone else is already taken"

Oscar Wilde
