Don’t Tell Me What To Fear

_____________________________________

Tell me what I should fear

Distract me with signage

While the real danger sits

Beneath it unlabeled

The dangerous culprit

*

Tell me what I should fear

Distract me with dumb tweets

And real fake news headlines

Ignore the authentic

Tightrope walk those fine lines

*

Tell me what I should fear

So I don’t have to think

I’ll just read and surmise

You’ve told me all I need

To make it to sunrise

*

Tell me what I should fear

I won’t think for myself

Like a lemming I’ll wait

For your next instruction

Free will I’ll abdicate.
