Most prisons are of the mind,
By its power we are confined,
No need for big gates and high walls,
Imagination will suffice!
To take away a man's freedom,
You need to plant some fear in it,
He will panic, shut himself in,
And come and hand you the keys!
In scale of primal emotions,
Fear overcomes greed by far,
The best jailers are only those,
Who play on emotions, and yours!
A fearful populace is one,
That is docile and tractable,
There are many dictatorships,
The best are not visible!
