    PROGRAMMED
    From conception to the day we’re born, constant growth/learning;
    Even in our infant years masses of information, discipline, tears.
    Which is all very necessary to instil an orderly view of life in you,
    Parameters, a safe domain, beyond which lies restraining/real pain.
    Adopting parental values with no real clue as to their being false/true,
    Automatically soaking up input without any vaguely critical bias or view;
    Analytical quality assessment, unnecessary to our very simplistic review
    Of doctrines well meaning/malicious, innocuous or totally BRUTAL/VICIOUS.
    Instinctively we climb, discarding our innocent! Happy nursery rhymes,
    Insatiable in our searching for more, and more reliable data to use/store.
    Our natural progression deviously hijacked by the Mass- Media’s obsession,
    Always guiding/deciding our direction or reaction to every socio-economic action.
    CONTROLLING how we grow, so subtly maintaining our Elitist status quo;
    Those very sinister shadows whose motives/identities we don’t even know.
    Constantly they’ll engage in sophisticated/manipulative manoeuvres/games,
    Our insane reality’s focused BARBARITY disguised by token gestures of charity.
    Ask a man of any technical SCIENCE at all you’ll see, they will all agree
    That one plus one will never ever make three, making it harder to perceive
    So many’s sincere belief in our SYSTEM’S inequalities ever being eased;
    Or somehow dreamily evolving into a Socio-Culturally fair-minded resolve.
    Don’t confuse constructive criticism with pure malice and racial hate;
    Analytical Controllers are brutally enhancing repression by the State.
    But I’ve been totally indoctrinated, programmed how to think, like you;
    I’m attempting to escape mine, with a conscious effort YOU can try too.

    Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed;
    graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?

    After writing this poem, I decided to get some feedback from other poets at the a Poetry Workshop that used to be on Monday evenings at the Poetry Society [when it was housed in a rather grand building in Earls Court Square up until the mid 1990’s] here in London, UK called The Poetry Round!

    After reading this poem, I then listened as some of the other poets responded with their thoughts, with most of them attempting to highlight/explain exactly why THEY didn’t consider themselves to be PROGRAMMED?
    What is your take/perspective on why their only response was silence when I said to them

    Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed;
    graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?
    Which is [my usual tag at the end of my posts] what this thread’s title is meant to be [is there any way of me squeezing that in or is it too long a title]?

    Everyone is programmed to some extent, your experiences and day to day dealings offer more of a measuring stick to where you are at than anything. The thing is do you question the "programming" to see within your mind's eye to check validity? Show me someone who has all the answers to everything and I will show you someone who is lost like a mutha.

    Always question and research. Life is a journey, you have people stating you must do this, or you should watch out for that, or whatever. All I say is truly dig deep within yourself and reach for your mind to be right and you should be on your way. Albeit not everyone is the same, and not everyone has similar mental makeups so no approach will be perfect for everyone. But on the real, I believe most know what is right and wrong and choose to do whichever. No voices, no devil, no past bad experience, just weakness and lowest common denominator thinking.

    Those are my thoughts, someone may come along and state I am completely wrong and I would say that their subroutines do not mesh with mine (a little dry programming humor there).
