We Need to Question This – Written Wednesday 31st October 2012 (Aged 37)

We Need to Question This

we need to question this
this is not right
our so called heroes
are bathed in a strange light
yet we think this is okay
we need to stand up to this
this cannot be right
should we be suffering
should be flailing
we need to start complaining
this is not right
something has gone wrong
is it the machine
or is it because we dare not dream
and the fabric of society
feels like a machine
yet no one seems to question
we just accept, ‘norms’
ones that should never be true
here are with rules that are cruel
how we really need something new

James Garratt – Wednesday 31st October 2012
