Your Poem BRAINWASHING Please my country of birth don't be unkind By brainwashing my newborn innocent mind Inform me about ALL the religions that each country preaches So I'm not forced to believe the one that my country teaches And please tell me of the thoughts of non-believers, too So I can consider their completely different point of view For I don't want a closed mind that's blinkered and shuttered Because I've been brainwashed by beliefs that only my country has uttered I want a pure open mind that soars high and flies free From all the ignorance and bigotry that only the truly brainwashed accept so easily So please my country of birth don't be unkind By brainwashing my newborn innocent mind John Wall, Wavertree
