I believe what I read,
Not knowing that I’m really
Being quite deceived,
TV doesn’t lie, does it?
Well not everything I read,
But things on the BBC
Or the Proper news on real TV,
They have to tell the truth there, right?
I listen to what everyone says online,
I didn’t mean to realign but after
A few days, I started to agree –
I started to think it was me,
I thought my opinions were true,
I didn’t know I had a hive mind,
Aren’t I really one of a kind?
I’d know a lie if I saw one,
I would never join in when violence begins,
I’d always say it wasn’t right,
But what if everyone else did it,
Perhaps then I might?
It takes a lot to be the real outlier,
The one who thinks higher or wider –
It’s easier to follow the herd than,
To think you’d be the rebel,
Don’t be absurd and deny your own nature
You’d do whatever culture urged
A hive mind is blind
Aren’t you doing it already?
