Alarmed

Living with no purpose or 
direction.
Like drones making others 
happy.
Stay in line, don't act out.
Don't get sappy.

Don't get out of line with me 
boy.
Just do what you're told.
Dollar by dollar.
I will not be sold.
So don't get out of line boy.
I do what I'm told.
Money in your pocket.
I will not be sold.

It's alarming that no one 
speaks up.
Punished for protest.
My mind is under tyranny.
I mustn't resist.
Puppets on a string.
Living for infinite.
How can I complain?
You'll have to get rid of me.
