Chains

swantwist

Is anyone truly free?
The World pounds these Rules into your head
What you should eat and how much you should eat
What looks good and what you should wear
What you can see and why you should understand
What you can hear and what you can never question
What you should say and when you should say it
How you should act and where it is appropriate
Who should be your friends and who you should not associate with
What you should achieve and what you should not become
Who you can love and what you cannot give your heart to
We are just like caged birds
Within these bars of Dos and Don'ts

Break the rules
And you will be judged and punished
An Outcast
Banished by those
You foolishly thought
You could Trust
Hah! You silly Man!

In the end you will realize
Those who told you the Rules
Almost always
Conveniently
Never apply the same Rules
To
Themselves

Freedom
What a Ridiculous notion
The only place
Where it truly exists
Is within the four corners of your Mind

Welcome to the Land of Hypocrites

Jonzz, a nicely decorated definition of hypocrisy. A public corner with notice boards should have a piece of this, especially the churches.
