“I” don’t need

2 Jul

A school where no voice be heard
that thinks free outside the herd

what fear worse than this can be said
fear of a childs free thought and head

where would we be living for this to be
perhaps a corporate owned autocracy
but with pen and paper, free mind in hand
let’s think  free from such domination

but teacher can not have that you see
so back in line if you please
back to your desk for some state education
beneath that flag of our “free nation”

the young radical in the corner please
you must write a hundred lines.
“I must not think free’
‘I must not think free’
‘I must not think free”
the hypocrisy of this must be seen

for a child’s free mind should not be owned
it’s the seeds of love that should be sewn
in a place with a family way
where a child’s free thoughts have a place to play

but if that child has within their heart
something they need to shout out loud
I feel we should all stop and listen
and a microphone should be given

to hear that voice above the crowd
standing tall , make mum proud

for it is the most precious thing
to watch that child learn to sing

reminding us of that which we seem now not to know
it’s not the child that needs changing
it’s the indoctrination, that’s  got to go .
