Group Think Salute the troops Salute the flag Flag this poem Flag the ragtag Ragtag cities Ragtag people People don’t think People are sheeple Sheeple herds Sheeple follow like birds Birds that flock together Birds flyin due south due to weather Weather that's nice Weather that's bad Bad things happen Bad to follow fads Fads will make you suspect Fads will make you believe Believe you’re fighting for freedom Believe you’re free Free to make choices Free to die Die like the fowl Die in the sky Sky filled with death and blackness Sky empty of light Light is truth Light ain’t always bright Bright beams of Bright lies in disguise Disguised as patriotism or Disguised to hide cries Cries from refugees Cries from blood beneath earth Earth crying out Earth dying from hurt Hurt people Hurt people People justify People lie like dogs Dogs like the bone dry Dogs’ tongues stay tied Tied hands stay bound Tied down with silence Silence they say is golden Silence has killed Killed with censorship Censorship… Kills… Written March 16, 2017
