Do Not Obey The Rules

The rules
who makes the rules
jewels in the crown
of the behemoth
fools follow
rules follow
fools follow
and it’s only
only

To Recognize
that everyone
is a fool
and to kiss
and make up
to forgive
and forget
and make up
and kiss
like a fool
everyone recognizes.

You see, young person,
the rules are used
in such a vicious manner
they are used to hurt and
punish
like an abusive parent

The rules are being enforced
by an abusive parent
drunk
high
corrupt
privileged
out of touch
removed
inhumane
violent

Rules can be precious
not vicious
not rough
not enough
but tough
and fair
and in the spirit
of justice
of making a thing
whole
not creating a hole
from which people
cannot return
and from their
doomed journey
impossible journey
they not only cannot return
they will be ridiculed
and made to carry heavy weight
than they already could cary
they failed already
they dropped the weight
and those that weild the rules
find it Just to add more weight
and put a person under

and

and

and

the worst of it young human
the worst worst worst of it
is that it is packaged
it’s wrapped up and bundled
for you to consume
and to make no an opinion
but a blind belief
you’ve been marketed to
young human
young human
young human

you’ve been marketed to
by psychopaths and monsters
true psychopaths and true monsters
the kind that actually remove souls
and kill passion
as they kill flesh.

You, young, brilliant human
have been sold,
you’ve been sold
and now you have a job
the job is to return the fucking product
bring it back
tell them you don’t want it
tell them you’re done with it
tell them in droves
walk out
not towards
do not believe your parents
even if you love them
they do not know
they were sold long ago
and they don’t know
but their investments have paid off
and they will not tell you the truth
because if they did
they would lose you
in the way they don’t want to lose anything.

You.
Young.
Brilliant.
Human.

Take it back.
Return to sender
Sanders
Return to sender
Trump

You’ve been granted the brief
but white hot ember
of free time
to examine your humaness
to look into yourself
through others
and find
layer
after
layer
and peel it
and peel it
and peel it
and wake up.

But if you believe
what you see,
oh fuck
you better get peelin’
Trust youselves
Trust each other

The rules are not meant
for you to flourish
as rules are meant to do
not meant to nourish
as a good rule will

Your rules
the ones you didn’t make up
are meant to put you in a prison
keep you in a prison
no care if the prison is of brick
and mortar
or flest and blood
and neurons trapped
in their own loops
burning out
the same routes

Do Not Believe The Rules
Do Not Obey The Rules.
