 Elsie`s Poetry



Have you ever been someone`s machine gun
When they have wound you up their job is done,
They know what you hear will make you so mad
Their plan will have worked and they will be glad.

They tell you what has happened is all wrong
And they hope that you`ll agree and go along,
Thoughts of what is right are put into your head
And they tell you things that ought to be said.

Mission complete they just sit back and wait
Knowing you`ll be so incensed and so irate,
You feel that things have got to be put right
So you speak your mind to their delight.

Truly this is what THEY wanted to do
But they had no nerve so they relied on you,
You unfilled their every desire
For what they gave you is their bullets to fire.
