Eyes forward

Seeing what he wants to see.

Ears closed to cries or criticism.

Fill out the forms

Check the boxes.

Everyone must fit somewhere,

conformity is the only rule.

Follow the tracks.

You’re inside a box,

safe within your preconceptions,

covered with the dirt of mediocrity,

buried alive.
