The system

assures us (especially if we're white)
that each of us
is unique, important -
while turning us into mere, dazed,
homogenised consumers.

The system talks of 'society'
though it depends on stamping out
everywhere
both co-operation and self-sufficiency.

The system offers us 'choice'
(of product, of political products)
while depriving us of judgement.
And never the choice of contemplation.

It is no accident that schools don't teach
statistics, logic, metaphysics - for they
might undermine the system,
the religion and the nation.
