Lab Mice

I think it would be nice
If we were all lab mice
Taking things as given
Without thinking twice.

With a shelter provided
And workload divided
Scantiest of positive
reinforcement would suffice.

And our energies would be utilized
In a cause for the civilized
For the benefit of many
It would be a simple price.

No one over, none underfed
Living only for today instead
And let clarity prevail over charity
A little hedonistic, to be precise.

But a plastic promise is what we devise
And plastic hopes keep us alive
When living becomes
A futile exercise.

A dystopian poem, heavily inspired by "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley.

If thy mind I fathom
If grant thy wishes i do
Happiness would not appreciated,
If sorrows were few..
Perfection would not be perfect,
If perfection on trees grew.
It is human to complain,
to ask for more..
to be dissatisfied with what i drew
Both thou doth not understand o ye human,
if you were mice ,
will bell that CAT who ?
