Leaders with their theatrical smiles,
Cloaked eyes and mechanical voice,
Renegades and their muffled noise
Sorry! too busy to look up,
Too busy to rise.
Always something important to do
In our important fast paced lives ,
So we keep running in circles
Like a hamster running on a hamster wheel,
Thinking he is doing something real,
Walking on the path for him which was mapped,
Never looking at the bars that cage him,
Never needing to escape,
If he doesn’t know, is he still trapped?
