Political Speak Code 101 Socialism for the Young It is okay to lie to those that we talk to. That is what we teach here. Do you understand? It is cold, but you will not complain. You will be hungry and beaten, but again…you will not complain. Do you understand? No, do not answer. Do not talk. We do not let that happen here.. Talking. That is a bad thing. It leads to friendships and ideas. It leads to peace and bridges to fill the gaps. We don’t like that. We want “complete” compliance. You will do as you are told. You have voted us into office and we have new wings. We can fly all over the world and make deals. We can sell you out, and use your assets, To increase our own lives so they will be the best, “They” can be… While you rot, and are fed… What we give you. Eat up. Don’t ask. Written in Free Verse until it is no longer free.
