The Puppet

Corporate Drone
Do my will
Dance on your marionette string

Obey the voice
Outside your head
Give up your will to change

Dance, little poppet
Wave your arms
Lift your legs, don't run

Cubicle homes
Were made for you
Outside here, you'll have none

Type, little fingers
Push your mouse
Think with a mind just for us

Believe in direction
That never looks out
Focus, remember, you must

Work hard
Work harder!
Forget family, friends

In here, focus only on one

purpose, you have none
Will, none but ours
Dance, marionette, for my fun
