Who is the highest authority?

Who is the highest authority
all these rules
who made them
are they still living
this place of the living
does what the dead has said
losing their tempers
feeling ill mannered
as if dressing proper
will ease the insanity
I’m insane because of these threads
I’m insane because of the brick and mortars
I keep inspiring towards
I hate when you tell me to calm
I hate that I can’t keep my eyes open
and my ears clean
because I’ll lose my temper
if I hear anymore about a smile
and how it’ll brighten your day
if you need a smile to feel that way
then it’s you that needs a change
are we all in service
if we’re all here to fill someone’s needs
then who is that authority
who needs am I filling
I’ll never know their name
living in a small burrow
and realizing were all meant to be the same
democracy is to ease us in
feel as if our needs matter
to keep us
where we already are
pretending that the highest of authority
is open to change.

Thanks for reading.
