Might As Well Pretend

You have the freedom
to think that you're free

while your mind continues to work you over
by its own glorious instincts

apart from who you think you are,
apart from who you thought you were.

No need to be ashamed,
your drive to believe is part of that same mechanism-
a glorious means 
of survival.

We both need to forget 
that we're the same...
(and isn't it more fun?)

We might as well pretend.
