(Written from a certain viewpoint )
The gymnastics of logistics
With multiple statistics
Need connecting then correcting
With countless inspections,
Then Just when you think the equations fit
Along comes the 'know all' establishment twit,
Who wants to mold your fresh off the press news
Conforming to text books with production line views,
"SUCCESS is the word" he says in a rage,
"In order to get it YOU MUST GO IN THIS CAGE!"
He'll clip your wings and tell you to fly
"TO THE TOP, TO THE TOP,
IF YOU CONFORM, IF YOU TRY"
He'll show you how
One inch at a time
Shuffling your way
Trying not to look down
"For your safety" he says "PUT THIS 'STRAIT-JACKET' ON
Can't have you flapping with no wings of your own !"
So he'll harness you on
To the rest of the chain
Moving along INSPIRATION ALL DRAINED!
"TO THE TOP, TO THE TOP " his voice shouts again
"Possibilities are endless, you've MUCH to gain!
Keep eating this grain, as all of us do
No need to try other delectable foods."
Shuffling along his conveyor belt
Moving slowly upwards with occasional jolts.
"Just think of the end, think what's at THE TOP,
Possibilities are endless, no need to stop!
CONFORM CONFORM, stay in line " he eggs on
"I'll give you papers, respectability sublime!"
An Identikit product all moving along,
All ready for packaging, gift wrap and all,
So after a long while, you MAY reach the top
And wave your papers to all,
"WELL DONE" says the twit, and ticks off his board
"ONE MORE can I add to my list !"
"GO FLY" he says, "GO FLY TAKE YOUR TRIP"
But the price was too high
He'd already gone 'clip' !
(So.... Get rid of the twit, BEFORE he snips
Then you can fly with ease
The routes that you please
As they come from within
That's why they're no strain. ) I
