RXC # 238; We have a picture prompt this week.


Free thinking is not something we encourage here

We would like very much for you to follow our directions

It’s not that we are holding your strings in our hands

It’s just that acting on your impulses is not safe for you

Just surrender your will to us and we’ll look after you

We will make sure the life you live is free of inspiration

Devoid of highs and lows

Just a comfortable life of dull monotony

That will keep you cocooned in a false sense of security

You are not puppets, just biddable citizens


Written for RXC PROMPT #238, hosted by Reena
