Society is Insidious

Society says _____.

(Insert anything here.)

And maybe you don’t believe it.

(You’re smarter. You’re wiser. You know better.)

But you hear it.

(Everywhere.)

Over and over again.

(Society never stops talking.)

Replay it enough outside of your head, and it’ll replay inside of it, too —

a snatch of a tune that you find yourself humming at random.

(Or less than random. Oh, the subtle power of association.)

Society says _____.

(It never shuts up.)

And maybe you don’t believe it.

(You know better than this. You know better. You do.)

And yet…

it’s what you think.
