What are you doing, you devastated one? Why do you dress yourself in scarlet And put on jewels of gold? Why do you highlight your eyes with makeup? You adorn yourself in vain. Your lovers despise you; They want to **** you.
Gems to be found in 2,000 year old Roman texts. Jeremiah 4:30
You want to go where the cool kids go You covet that old time rock and roll Make a difference Build a city Run right to the top And get rich-filthy But if you think you represent high society Allow for me to serve you some reality When you think you'll finally have resting time Hang it all, you'll be stuck with five ex-wives
You crave to go where celebrities go Something us poor kids will never know You want to make a difference Change history Something new of yourself A new kid to be But if you think success will raise you up early Life will move right through you, thick as it can be If you think you can make it home on time Find your light And shut it down. You'll be alright
There are those who’d curse the paintings That held the highest beauty For being formed from something Impermanent as oil and paint Intangible as light.
There are those who’d curse a romeo Cast in stone relief For such vanity, and hubris For how could such a man Begin to know such beauty and The truth of open feeling?
There are those who would cut this holy wire That tethers us across the world For fear of some lurking evil Some banging in the dark That’s bound to take our souls away Some lack of love or depth
There are those who’d see the flesh on flesh And cries like angelsong And **** it for it’s fleetingness For their father’s love was purer. For their father’s love was strong Their poor and lonely fathers Cursed to loveless love
Oh brave new world that I have seen That has such people in it! Who cry for long-forgotten men Yet **** the ones before them!
wrote this in anger after the 50th poem I saw pass by which complained about the evils of modern technology and society
