What is the game?
How do we play?
Whose rules are they?
They’re mine —
   no, they’re mine
not true, they’re mine!
Play as I say, or
we don’t play at all!

Can’t I ever choose the game?
Can’t I ever set the rules?

I play others’ games
conform to their ways
agree to their plan
   and lose myself.

Who am I?
What do I like?
What do I feel?
What do I think?

I don’t know
I’ve never played my game
   never set my rules.
So, now I don’t know the game
And I don’t want to play.
