The subversive act 

by mudrhetoric

I’ll play dutifully
One with a plastered smile
Raising my hand in class
Contributing to the discourse

I’ll play dutifully
Keeping my mouth shut
As you prattle there
Up in front of the class

I’ll play dutifully
But I won’t be your lapdog
Nuzzled to your bosom
I just can’t do that

I’ll play dutifully
Always a-beaming with adoration
My perceived causticness
Transmogrified into sweet, soothing oil

I’ll play dutifully

Smile.
