Seared

 

It’s searing you, it’s burning me,

these things that we weren’t meant to see;

 

the backward steps, the progress ceased,

in a world of of worry and dis-ease.

 

Not knowing what is gonna be,

but fearing that it won’t come free;

 

we are all to suffer, all to pay,

they call it progress – I say decay.

 

Controlled to such a great extent

we’ll wonder where our freedom went;

 

how we all became somebody’s toy

in their power-hungry ploy.

 

When life is measured just by dollars,

they’ll control you by your collars

 

and you’ll have no choice – just toe the line;

do what you’re told and then be fine.

 

But where’s the individuality?

Seared away, like you and me!
