#PoetryLovers: Brainwashed

Sitting in a room full of chattering strangers hoping the knowledge they acquire take them higher than the generation before,

Unlock doors to the future with the hope to capture what you believe should be yours,

Little do they know the system knows where everyone will go before we go,

They raise the barriers to keep the barriers between mobility firmly entrenched,

Hence why ethnic intelligence apply for the for the glory of Oxford,

But how many really make the bench?

Teachers, Doctors, whatever you want to call them,

Poisoning your mind with what interests them,

Skipping the real atrocities caused by man,

Vietnam, Slavery and the atom bomb on Japan,

Things that deserve to be brought to light but instead we continue our fight against humanity,

Shit we need clarity,

The news we see we can’t understand because we’ve been programmed,

Programmed to accept what is fed to us when the brain we own is what controls us,

Should control us,

Forced to live in a society where superiority is the majorities goal and somewhat prevails,

But I can exhale,

Because my eyes are open and I can see what’s going on,

This government wants the underclass gone,

Cleansed so that wealth and power can shower the capital and shun the latter,

It won’t happen without war,

And with that said I head to the door,

Leaving the strangers oblivious chatter.
