The Wolf’s Clothing: a poem By John McKinley Pride Jr

“The Wolf’s Clothing”

The wolf dresses in sheep’s clothing.

The lawyer dresses like a shark.

The government dresses like our big brother.

Teachers dress like small gods and teen idols.

Parents dress like their children and fear about how they will grow.

Little girls dress like women and little boys dress like thugs.

The media dresses like your friend till they find the rules they can bend.

Businesses dress up like shiny new things to get you to buy them a wedding ring.

We dress as we are told and never change a thing.
