You shall not speak your mind

You will not demand change

You cannot question

You will not pray

Will not sell

Or buy

You must not have any dreams whatsoever

Nor have any hope or aspirations

You will go to war on demand

Or dungeons unknown

Will denounce friends

Betray conscience

Have no faith

Principles

Or ethics

And there will not be a free thinking soul

You will not uphold your honour

Cannot celebrate heritage

You will have no history

Nor pride in culture

Total submission

No questions

Emptiness

You shall assume the identity ascribed to you by us

You will only use the languages we tell you to

You will have the kind of education we allow

Worship the gods we create in our image

You will only eat as much as we tell you

You will read what we want you to

We will call you what we want

Only live where we ask you to

Give up anything we ask for

If you refuse we shoot

To kill, no hostages!

Order from above!
