To Play The Game

"Play the game" they say. "Just play the game." The only way to get ahead in life is to play the game. The rules are simple they say; bow, kneel, bend, but dont break. Kiss ass, tell people what they want to hear. Do as they say to do even if it breaks all of your morals, even if you know what they're telling you to do is wrong. Listen, dont question, never ask why, and you will get ahead in life. This is what they have told me, for years, for decades. "Play the game son, play the game, and you will be rewarded." That is not me though, this game is not fair. There are those who will walk in the direction of the winding river because it is easy, but there are those who will walk against the current to achieve what is right.
