Follow the rules

When I’m older, I’ll make the rules.
This is a quote of fools.
As children we think adulthood,
Will actually being something good.

What we don’t know,
Is that things don’t go,
The way that we plan,
When working for the man.

Do you really make the rules?
Or does your job work like schools?
Show up at this time,
Do your work and you’ll be just fine.

You don’t make the rules,
You follow them.
