PUPPET ON A STRING

Marionette man
In a Punch & Judy show
Jump, sway, nod, pirouette
Controlled by remote hands
Dancing to someone’s tune
Expressions of forced mirth
Making observers smile away their sorrow

Whose is the wooden heart, I ask?

  1. I think this is the reality of a person’s life today. Although, he / she feels in control on his own, the strings are being run by someone else. Is it the Government ? As they feed us information. As they incentivise our reactions. As they manipulate our very thinking!
