No, Thank You | A Poem by Guy Farmer

Do this,
Do that;
It has to be done
This way,
That way,
The way I say,
How it’s always been
Or has randomly developed
Through years of people
Scrambling to hang onto
Power and prestige
At the expense of
Everything else,
Rules smothering
Passion, creativity, life.
No, thank you.
