Do What We Say And Be An Individual (Do It Now)

Do What We Say And Be An Individual (Do It Now)

A Poem by J. R.

Nonconformity is a funny thing nowadays.

You wanna be an individual?
You wanna be a wild card?
Follow this simple procedural
It's not that hard

Wear this brand name
Listen to this band
Individuals dress the same
Individuals stick it to the man

Buy converse and hooded shirts
Start complaining about sheeple
Go with your friends to the concerts
Now you're an individual, just like all those other people

So true! People are like, I'm an individual, but they just act like everyone else.

Ironic isn't it. So many people claim to be individuals, but in seeking to be so, they conform to the same standards.

Nice, short, and to the point.
