Please enjoy this moment of indoctrination


By Big Pharma, Big Energy, and Big Government

Enjoy the show

Hypnotize me, mesmerize me


Electronic amusement both night and day

I don’t care

About free thoughts, hopes and dreams

Irrelevant to me

Don’t waste my time with them

Not my cup of tea

Planning is a waste of energy too

I’m lazy

Let someone else decide for me

Quietly, of course

I’m trying to surf the web without thinking

Video content

All I want or care to hear about is on-line

Talking heads

Tell me how to think and feel


Who to hate, to ridicule, and mock

Try it, it’s easy

Just listen to my influencer

Again and again

Eventually you come to understand


Are more important than logic

Watch me

Rage and cry until I get my way

Age doesn’t matter

Temper tantrums do matter however

And violence

Gangs marching in the streets


Leaping from page to reality

Didn’t read the book

In fact, didn’t read any important books

Video content

That’s where the real action is found


Something about camera angles


Standing in the exact right places

It’s happening!

Pay close attention to this next clip

Yesterday’s news

Today becomes something different

Versions they say

Doesn’t matter anyway


I’ll understand it this new way


The past just seems to be in the way

Ad content loading

Everything I want is advertised here

More magic

Someday they say it will all be free

Until then

Spend all my money on what they say


Rent, school, and birth control are covered

Food stamps

Let me eat steak and lobster

Too bad

Cigarettes and tattoos aren’t on the list


That’s all going to change

Just vote

Or show up to make your mark

You’ll see

When we pick who they tell us to pick

Everything is guaranteed

It’s easy

To allow someone else to lead

More time

Left for me to work hard at nothing

I don’t care

What you think of me


You’ll be the minority

Author’s Note:

Our world is teetering on the brink of “failure by globalism” and we’d better do something soon.  The population of sheeple grows daily as our indoctrination centers dig their tentacles deeper and deeper into the brains of our kids until nothing is left but programmed responses and memes.  This piece is a quick hitting look at life through the eyes of someone being influenced 24-7.  Orwell would be shocked at how prophetic his book 1984 really was.

I write about everything and sometimes nothing at all. I'm fascinated by old things, rusty things, abandoned places, or anywhere that a secret might be unearthed. I'm passionate about history and many of my pieces are anchored in one concept of time or another. I've always been a writer, dating back to my youth, but the last decade has been a time of growth for me. I'm continually pushing the limitations of vocabulary, syntax, and descriptive phrasing.

    So spot on, Ralph. If my kids were school age today I would home school them. Teachers have become political, they have crossed the line. Far too many people are content to not worry about anything outside their own home and prefer to let government carry on as they wish. You are right – we need to do something and quick. I write to my representatives with concerns and nothing changes. I vote for who I think is best for our country and people. What else can we do? There must be a way to put a stop to all the insanity in politics. Kudos on a well written piece.

    Emotions are more important than logic….funny I saw a Facebook video outlining this exact statement. The woman who said it turned out looking like a complete nutjob. It’s crazy, I mean, yeah we care about emotions, it’s not like I go about yearning to destroy someone’s soul every day, but facts are facts and emotions should never play into logic. not to the point of running a nation, deciding if someone is guilty of murder, or breaking the law. These people are out of line and out of control. We are in for a long road ahead

    Ralph I love this poem it made me think about the current situation of the world. What gets me is that we have been basing our opinions and our consumption on advertising that has been bombarding us since birth. Not only us but generations before us. It is truly hard to say how much of our decisions are not biased based on a lifetime of consumerism and advertising. Jamie
