trap

if I pull you from the trap in which I see you fell
would you then be grateful, I don’t think that I can tell
for it seems to me that some are happy in the hole
all decisions made for them, no mind or heart or soul
needed when you’re caught within the boundaries of the snare
but let me not be so unkind, you after all might care
when some of us are trodden down by those who seek to rule
told that they must know their place or be branded as a fool
denied a say in how they live, who they may love or what
they may be allowed to learn, and all those things they’re not
then take a risk and stand your ground with others who would fight
for only stood together will we be able to prevent this plight
but if you find this frightening my advice is then
get down on your knees once more, crawl back into the pen

    That, Good Sir, is a most excellent poem. It also defines the state of politics today. There seems to be two types of people, those that fight and those that sit in their hole complaining!!! Applolsauce on this one!
