Don’t be a pea!!!

Now everyone of us appears the same,
A swarm of ants without the time to think
(If ants were large and brown or dirty pink)
It’s time for you and I to quit the game.
      They drill us all until we’re flat and tame
      And quite prepared to do the things we’re told.
      We scuttle round to earn a little gold,
      It’s time for you and I to quit the game.
Now take a stand, so they will know your name.
Don’t be a clone, a human frozen pea
They’ve tried to take away our liberty.
It’s time for you and I to quit the game.
      Now everyone of us appears the same,
      It’s time for you and I to quit the game.

It’s one of them echo sonnet thingies innit.
