Herd


Desperation, and
The search for identity
The need to conform

Affectation, and
The cool assimilation
Seeking unity

Pull together, for
The safety of the ego
From the many, one

We turn down the flame
That sheds the light on difference
We are dim actors

Examination
We suffer it, we give-up
The secrets of self

To the common cause
Given to the common good
Our identities

I was alone, and
I stood apart from the world
In rebellion

I watched my image
As the world changed a movement
To fad and fashion

Pushing unity
Providing identity
Cause to conform
  
A safe place to hide
The sheep in the sheepfold, flock
The id, satisfied
