Box Smashin'

Don't stay in there!

By The Dani WriterPublished 4 years ago 1 min read

If I dwell on how ridiculous it actually is

I won't do it

Because it is in fact


How can you teach this way?

How can you learn this way?

How can you come through to the other side without being anything other than a multi-faceted, albeit still carbon copy of what is already acceptable?

Guidelines a euphemism for rules,

the lecture hall a grooming tool for your silence,

"Big Brother" now the regulatory authority; an official and professional stamp of approval culminating in a sweet employment contract to ensure your continued compliance

If you don't disintegrate the box

some part of limited thinking will find you

and stick

social commentary
