Mind Tamer

by Darcy Fischer

I am a trainer

Standing on a tall platform whipping my voice

Defending myself from the wild beasts

Who attack my patience with their sharp high pitched screams.

I stand on the platform with a mission

to educate  minds who are not in the environment to learn.

Who are fenced in a room of concrete walls and steel windows

A prison caging young wild imaginations

I stand on a platform with my tools to train the brain

To be obedient, orderly and adjusted to the rules

Walking like puppets

Strings held by their conscious

Tangled by order and formulas developed in curriculums studied

Programmed to act and react in a specific way

And punished for being different
