A little poem I wrote after a day of politics at school. It is a bit angry but I still enjoy it. Please let me know what you think. (Malicious and critical comments are especially appreciated. :P)

The sheep bleat out their ignorant lies,
They cannot see the truth which cries:
“What you think you love, you merely despise!”
The TV calls them to action.
“We must destroy the malicious spies!”
And all together the sheep shall rise,
To obey the fiend controlling their lives,
They form a ghostly faction.
The opposition watch horrified,
As the sheep march on convinced inside,
They cannot sway them though they try,
The sheep won’t budge a fraction.
Within the crowd a sheep will rise,
Struggling, he doesn’t want to comply,
The rest of the sheep avert their eyes,
His throat slit --no reaction.
In crimson mire he slips and slides,
The sheep are deaf to all his cries,
At last the opposition dies,
The end begins to happen.
