    Say brotha
    I was just wondering
    could you
    please
    answer
    these
    simple
    questions

    Do you think for yourself...
    or do others think for you?...

    Are puppet masters stringing
    along a dummy creating
    angles from which you
    must move~~
    do they
    ---speak for you
    ---react for you
    ---decide for you or
    maybe
    they just direct you
    to tell little white lies
    and put you on display
    for passers-by to view

    Why can't a man such as
    yourself stay true
    to your feelings
    and do the things
    that YOU want to do

    Not everyone has your
    best interests at heart
    ~~so get smart~~
    and drop the
    'nequin' off of the Man
    and become
    whole once
    again

    Striking a pose in your minds eye...If I move...never mind I won't. Still as a leaf on a breathless Monday.

    Nice piece.
