expendable one

By dumbone

Follow your leader

Don’t think

Don’t consider

You’ll have your commands


On white paper

Don’t smile

Don’t cry

Don’t worry


Paper can’t die

Ink can’t blink

Letters can’t breathe

Sentences can’t scream

But you can

Expendable one

    This reminds me a lot of my favorite RATM song, Roll Right. This was very well written and much deserving of the win. Unfortunately, we live in a world in which we are forced to fall in line, in which, to the powers that be, our existence is worth less than a microchip, in which this even need be deemed wisdom at all. Well done and congratulations.
