The Sleeping Oracle

We better not cough, we better not sneeze

We better not eat, we better not breathe

We better not love, we better not care,

We better not look, we better not stare

We better not read, we better not learn

Better not think, better not discern,

We better not march, we better not vote

We better not write, we better not note

 Better not believe, better nor pray

Better not create, better not play

We better not sing, we better not dance

No passion, no romance

We better just coil, suffocate in darkness

Why?

So we don’t upset the markets!
