Conform

Mirror, mirror
I am that imposter
That they call
The copycat.
I have not an
Original bone
In my body
For everything I do
Is mimed after
One celebrity
Or another
Because in school
I was taught
To never
Rock the boat
But simply
To conform.
So now I do it
Night and day,
I know not
Any other way
For I am stuck
Here in my box
With all the other
Copycats.
