Psychodrama

Playing out your role,
Seeking transformation,
Sharing your control,
Surfing every station.

Actions of the group
Coming to consensus,
Morality in troops
Pleasing to our senses.

The cast, the mob is wired,
Armed with their pretenses.
Compromise desired,
Breaking down defenses,

Reality’s retired
As the play’s repeated,
Collectively, for all,
Everyone’s mistreated,

Corporate spirit guides
Facilitate the play
Steer the compromise
Little day by day.

Those anonymous,
Far away, conflicted,
Leave what’s real behind.
Hopelessly addicted.

Noisy little voices

Noisy little voices
Out to change your mind,
Giving children choices
Gets you in a bind,

Tangled in your course
Without the line well drawn.
Establish rules with force
Or with the line you’re strung.

Conscience rightly forms
Amidst your just because.
Endure their little storms.
Don’t compromise a clause.

Be their Mom or Dad.
Never just their friend.
Correct them when they’re bad.
They’ll thank you in the end.

No trapeze

Neither for them, nor against,
Deadly new moralities,
Under covers of pretense,
Incremental, by degrees,
Redefining prejudice,
Rights protected, no one sees
Further from the truth, remiss,
Neutrality that aims to please,
Climbing to the precipice,
Reasoning with no trapeze.
