etre in the Morning is a series dedicated to poetry and the written word.

Baa Baa by Aidan Mcnally

Tell me again how we’re not sheep?
Time to get up time to go to sleep
Time to take a shit and time to eat
We’re told what, when, where, and who to be
And we comply dutifully
Sometimes I find it hard to believe
That anyone is really free
See the cars lining up the street
All standing still until the light turns green
