Regarding Race, Nation, and Our Future

Written Work by Graham T. Baden

Don’t Listen To Music

School turns people into socialists, they tell me,
Don’t go to school.
Music makes people rebellious, they say,
Don’t listen to music.
Don’t read books,
Don’t learn.
Don’t make too much noise, they demand.
Just listen to what the Man tells you to do.
Do your small part for
The Big Machine,
Bigger than you’ll ever be,
They say.
Pay your taxes on time,
Support the nation.
Buy more things,
More stuff.
Support the economy, they tell me,
And die slowly.
