five haiku on conformities, for the weekend (okay six)

if you tell people
"don't drink the kool-aid" they will
drink more, to spite you

in all the ages
sheeple don't wake up if you
yell "wake up sheeple!"

You can't tell a stag
in rutting season that there's
more to life than sex.

Stampeding lemmings
tell more of humanity
than we wish were true

Swarms have no wisdom
unless they are flying to
the same hive we are

There were originally three, thus the link, but then I threw in two more so it's now five.

once the crease is made
paper can't be unfolded
choose your fold with care

It may be normal
to conform to social norms.
Is conform a con?

Ah, you've inspired me to come up with another one riffing on origami

once the crease is made
paper can't be unfolded
so fold with caution

when fold you enter
beware lest it enfold you
and crease without cease
