Yes. I Know.Mature

Two people are in a white room. No windows. One florescent bulb. Two chairs.

Do the right thing.

Yes. I know. I try.

Be reasonable.

Yes. I know. I try.

Be unique.

Yes. I know. I am.

Fit in.

No. I won't. Not ever.

Stand up for what you believe in.

Yes. I know. I do.

Don't back talk.

But you just said....?

Don't contradict the wise.

No. I think I will.

Cause no harm.

Yes. I know. I try.

Hurt no one.

Yes. I know.

Punish the bad.

But you just said....?

Follow in your parents' footsteps.

No. I don't want to.

Do what you want.

Yes. I know. I will.

Follow the rules.

Wow. You're a hypocrite, now aren't you?

Have an opinion.

Yes. I know. I do.

Don't flaunt any one thing about yourself.

Yes. I know. I won't.

Show off your best feature.

Wow. You're starting to piss me off.

Let society control you.

Seriously? Fuck off.

One person is in a white room. No windows. One florescent bulb. One upright chair, another on its side, and the door thrown open.

The End
