People may look completely different
But we all talk and think the same,
Political correctness has stunted our minds
‘Right thinking’ is entirely to blame.

Political correct cabbages
Is what we’re raising now,
No freedom fighters amongst the young
The rebels have forgotten how.

Forgotten how to rebel against
Government-augmented mind control,
They no longer demand the basic rights
The thought-controllers blatantly stole.

No more do we retain the basic rights
That the past generations won,
They’ve been given away freely
By the cabbages we call our young.

In ‘1984’ George Orwell wisely prophesised
That the young would be the first to sell out,
And sixty years or more on
His prophetic warning has come about.
