Society

Welcome to society,
We hope you enjoy your stay,
And please feel free to be yourself,
As long as it’s in the right way,

Make sure you love your body,
Not too much or we’ll tear you down,
We’ll built you for smiling,
And then wonder why you frown,

We’ll tell you that you’re worthless,
That you shouldn’t make a sound,
And then cry with all the others,
As you’re buried in the ground,

You can fall in love with anyone,
As long it’s who we choose,
And we’ll let you have your opinions,
But please shape them to our views,

Welcome to society,
We promise that we won’t deceive,
And one more rule now that you’re here,
There’s no way you can leave.

 

Opinions are of the writer.
