We are run by rules

Rules meant no freedom,

If only I could sleep all day,

Be free of all the duties,

If only I could plan my day,

Then I wouldn’t have to go to school,

If only I could eat anything,

Then I would forget about greens,

All I wanted was freedom,

Which meant doing anything I wanted,

Anytime I wanted to.

Rules run the world,

If I sleep all day,

I will have nothing to eat,

If I refuse to work,

I will rot in poverty,

Every government is run by rules,

If I follow them,

Doesn’t mean am not free,

It means am disciplined
