postmodernism

If you’re too fat
It’s a disease
If you’re too skinny
It’s a disease
If you’re unhappy
It’s a disease
If your child acts like a child
It’s a disease
If you love sex
It’s a disease
If you drink too much
If you smoke too much
If you think too much
It’s a disease
that must be medicated
either with meetings
or pills.
You must be medicated
to bring you back
into the ranks of society.
Your kids must be medicated
for asking too many questions in school,
they must remain silent to be educated.

Critical thinkers are laughed at
and called conspiracy theorists.
Advocates for peace
are deemed unpatriotic.
Rethinking the status quo
is looked upon with derision.
Questioning authority
will get you thrown in jail.
Entertainment
is a necessity of the people.
Principles are muddled,
Mothers long to be
their daughters,
Children worship
debauched celebrities,
Executions of the harmless
are applauded and cheered,
Convictions are found
only in courtrooms,
Wisdom is learned
through bumper stickers,
Mindless babble
passes for political debate,
“Rights” are defined
as a material substance,
Important books
are left unread,
Uncertainty rules the day,
Fear controls the masses.
