LEADERS - not followers

NAPOWRIMO 2013 #27


They say the greater part of valour
Is discretion
While possession is nine tenths
Of the law
And though the score may be settled
At your leisure
They'll take the pleasure all the same
And what is more...

Like a cat with nine whole lifetimes
To enjoy
They'll employ your services
Time after time
They're well aware that they're exploiting
Your emotions
But your devotion is a weakness
Not a crime...

And by the time you realise
You have a voice
You'll know your choice of silence
Was your fatal flaw
So you'll ignore the urge to run
From their circus
Because escape is not an option
