Your attention

by joetwo

Let me have your attention

Undivided and unrequited

As I lay it down for you

Tell you how it is

How it’s going to be

A place for you and a place for me

A place for everyone

No outsiders

No deviations from the norm

A great experiment in mediocrity

No conflict, no problem

Only uniformity

A safe secure existence

Happily plodding along

My vision to you

And you will listen

Because I bring safety out of danger

Order from Chaos

And that is what you really want

Not freedom

Not ever
