The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - We are all programmed
We are all programmed
We are all, each one of us, programmed to a certain degree,
By the owners of the newspapers and the programs on TV,
We fall in line and nod our heads because of what we are told,
We’re like a flock of sheep being led down the road to be sold.
Sorry, I aroused you from that sleepy self-righteous feeling,
There’s not much you can do to these elitists wheeling and dealing,
Because those in control have their own covert agenda,
Be good and obey now - no callbacks or binding referenda.
