I manage you because you can't manage yourself.
I control and order you but you give me my power.
I punish and kill you if you disobey me.
You feed me and make me grow.
But i protect you and care for you.
Heal you when you become sick.
Rescue you when you are lost.
Save you from yourselves.
You need me and i need you.
But i have become king and you peasent.
I am bound by a code of responsibility.
And my power is limited, but by whom?
You created my rules. You.
It was you who created me.
But i will never cease to be your ruler now.
It is probably too late to destroy me.
But you live in bliss and harmony,
yet you ridicule me.
You often forget to see all you have.
You have freedom and protection.
Have a nice life.

That was a moderate one,
congratulations.

It was hard to write.

I imagine it's something along the lines of "technology," or "computers."

Even "democracy" fits.

I'm thinking of something like gadgets.
If computers have no doors or fences, who needs Windows and Gates?
