Slave

Get up!  You're late!
Move your lazy ass!
Alarming, since you inhabit
A free country, a free world,
That everyone is enslaved,
		
We get to choose our masters.
That or they are given to us
As gifts...  how charming.
We're grateful to receive them
Into our lives.

They effortlessly govern us.
The best of them are dressed and decorated.
Time to recall the wealthy southerners
In American History texts.

As we carry them everywhere we roam,
Instead of tapping whips,
They chain our wrists.
Would you prefer digital or analog?
Tick, tick, tick, tock.
