A Meeting of Those Who Control Your Life: A Modern Sonnet

Let us destroy humankind’s minds today;
Let us burn, bury, and cover the truth;
Tell the adults: back to work on Monday!
And we shall let our God handle the youth.

Insurance, retirement; feed on fear
While the children learn our causes are just;
Keeping morals, or shame, ever so dear
And we shall bombard them with greed and lust.

Once they’re grown up and indoctrinated,
We will shame them, confuse them even more
We’ll have them docile, assimilated
We’ll honor man, call the woman a whore.

Separation anxiety is key
To make society how it should be.
