The Land of the Imprisoned and the Home of the Terrified

I live in a country full of

sadists

obsessed with punishment

every

single

mistake

is met with a

harsh and exacting

punishment

It doesn’t matter what

happens to you

because you had it coming

get cancer

well god gave you that to teach you a lesson

house catches on fire

well, you should have bought a house someplace else,

what were you thinking?

riots happening in your town

about police violence

obviously the fault of

single

mothers…..

So quick to blame

all the countries problems

on the helpless individual

rather than the country as a whole

because

you see

when it’s just

you

it is hard to fight back

it is hard to make change happen

it is all too easy to believe them

they have trapped us

riddled us with doubt, fear, and guilt

to the point where we are in a prison

of our own making

mindlessly going through

the movements

that have been carefully selected

for us

too afraid to step a toe out of line

because

we know all too well

the punishments

that await us
