Select option 2

We are not in control
there is no vertical or horizontal hold

we’re being left to our own devices
which have been
devised by the puppeteers.

I’ll guess
another three cheers
for the NHS,
no money for the nurses.

We’ve been plugged in to
a mainframe
and its drained out our energy
to give life to a secret fraternity

we are not in control
we never were.
