Lobotomy

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

To treat the people who are free
and make them better yet, indeed
a chemical lobotomy
is just the tool that we all need.

So give them fluoride, tell 'em lies
discredit those that speak out loud
ignore the protests and the cries
it soon will calm the stupid crowd.

You take a normal western nation
and turn them into docile sheep
prevent descendants by castration
while you have promises to keep.

There is no point in instant death,
you want the dummies for a while
they'll pay until their final breath
while we go back to say 'Sieg Heil'.

I say to you who will not grasp
the facts behind, please try to see
they'll fleece you 'til at last you gasp
'Please give me a lobotomy'.

Sort of a dark paranoid view, possibly correct, though.
This harsh poem is very well done and I suspect it does exactly what you meant it to...gives us all something to chew on. This is the stuff of which nightmares are made. Raynette
You paint a very dismal picture of the world Herbert. Probably true............ You've opened my eyes, I'll say that. Great write. Sincerely, Mary
