“Puppet”

I am a puppet.

Here are my arms.
Here are my legs.
There are my strings
as you make me dance
for your entertainment.

I am a puppet.

Let my mouth open.
Let my cheeks laugh.
Make my strings
sing out in my voice
with words that are not my own.

I am a puppet.

Free will was
is
and will never be
mine.
