Conditioned to Think In a Certain Way – Friday 30th August 2019

Conditioned to Think In a Certain Way

conditioned to think in a certain way
no reward for your ‘masculinity’
they tell you who to blame
they give you, colours, genders, groups
and for your prejudice they provide names
why has this not been a given
why are angry young men
so bankrupt when it comes to compassion

conditioned to think in a certain way
in virtual boot camps
making the same type of hate
they tell you that you are right
and you should have a glorious fate
you lack care,
because of the trauma heaped upon you
and it left you spare,
you lack care
because your upbringing was goof
but you you were never taught values and compassion
