Human Factory

Hundreds of children
Born with imaginations
Educated into blindness.
“I am doing well in school
I am getting the grades
Am I living the good life?”
No, not yet.

Thousands of students
Looking for enlightenment
Processed for capital.
“I am doing well in university
I am getting the degree
Am I living the good life?”
No, not yet.

Millions of workers
Toiling for a prize
Whatever it may be.
“I am doing well in the office
I am getting a raise, a promotion, a new car, a new house
Am I living the good life?”
No, not yet.

“But I have followed all the rules of the game.”
That was your mistake.
