The Kafka Trap (a poem)

If she can swim, then burn her
But if she can’t, oh well
Her fate’s to drown, she’s going down
As far as I can tell

When they say jump, say “how high?”
Don’t you dare resist
Signal virtue proudly or they’ll
Put you on their list

The rules are always changing
Exploit past tragedy
Crush dissenting viewpoints
Make people scared to speak

The Kafka trap is toxic
Refuse to play that game
Speak your views with confidence (don’t)
Hang your head in shame

Don’t bow down to the mob
Smile, be bold, and speak
Freedom and forgiveness are the
Antidotes we seek

“Use boldness but not overbearance”-Alma 38:12
