Blue Genie

Blue Genie

A Poem by John Prophet

Always there.
Always has been.
Holding firm,
controlling.
System set
to motivate,
control.
Simply
arranged
that way.
Designed to
stay alive,
move things
along.
Flowing
through the
machine,
lubricating.
Covering
the
mind.
Gets in
the way ,
altering
judgement.
Pushing buttons,
clouding the
soul.
Cares not
for societal
norms.
Never had to,
why start
now?
Blue Genie.
Constant
struggle.
Constant
struggle to
hold at
bay!
