Isn’t it interesting How in the absence of light There is darkness? How hunger Signifies the need to eat How thirst Indicates one needs a drink How no fuel Doesn’t move your car How no money Means you have no value And how words on paper Can touch and move your soul?
What’s more interesting Than all this Is how we are drawn to the light How we eat to stop hunger We drink to cut our thirst A full tank makes us drive faster And money can buy happiness Whilst poetry Can melt your icy heart
So…. Why do we consume? Why is it we See the world as an object? Why is everything to us a possession? Why must we compete - to pointlessly Be better than one another? What’s with this drive To stand out from the crowd When a man standing on his own Will never be as strong Or as loud As a crown that stands together?
Why be on top? If you ask any woman Or man, it’s simple Power equals control A game of ******* For in that instance You have become a possession And once that happens You have lost all your value Not right away of course But slowly in time Because that’s how to properly Consume and break a human Slowly - the slower the better And they will slowly crack and give in Giving you their all And accept that now They are your property Worse In the final act The secret move The magic trick you never see coming For 1 - 2 - 3 Abra -go-****-yourself And they pull the carpet From beneath your feet By the time you’re standing They’re gone You’ve been dumped On the side of the road Like a used ******
Worse still They would keep you close Act like nothing is wrong Smile at you And as they speak You read between the lines ‘I have replaced you’
Now you may think This poem is about The birds and the bees But you are wrong For When you have friends like these Who needs enemies?
