Poetry By: Philip Roberts
Literary fiction

From the 1930 to the 1980s the young were the most important people in our society, because they were the freedom fighters who would not take bull from anyone. But over the last couple of decades, Generation_Y has become Generation_Sell-Out, who now accept, endorse and promote the politically correct status quo.

Please tell me who will fight for truth
Now that the young people have sold out?
I once believed justice could return
But I'm beginning to have my doubts.

Tell me who will fight against the leaders
Who daily lie to control the people?
Now that the young have sold out
And instead of humans have become sheeple.

The young sheeple bleat agreement
To all of the despots's commands,
They no longer fight against tyrants
They no longer can make a stand.

Who can stand up against mind control
Now that the young are in its embrace?
We will stop the foul potentates
From enslaving the entire human race?

Who will fight for our freedom
Now the young gladly follow commands?
Now that just like mindless computers
The young are easily programmed.

They're programmed to think like each other
And never think or act all alone,
To never question the politicians's lies
And not notice that freedom has flow.
