It happens nearly every day
Choose one from column “A”
Two from column “B”…
And what have you?

Discordant, out of sync…
A life of being out of sorts
Where we act like we’re
Hiding in disguise, or should

We face such a wealth
Of phony choices…not
What we want or need
But choices devoid of flavor

They start by taking away
Our individuality…that’s
What schools are for
They often succeed…

Soul-killing sameness
The house with picket fence
Or paying ruinous rents
Pay your money…really? Choice?

I bought part of the story…
Played their roles too long
I hated it…knew it was wrong
I’m done. Gone. Never coming back!

The letter, when returned, will say…
