Don’t Tell Me About Sacrifice

 sailor-671187

Don’t tell me about sacrifice
I don’t need your hypocritical words
A notion merely secondhand
A duty you constantly deferred
With my family soundly asleep
I’ll carry my seabag back to the dock
Taking with me their prayers
Never survive without them – my rock

Keep Your Labels

Keep your labels

Your hypocrisy becoming the norm

Judging other’s words

You despise my nonscholarly form

I refuse to play your games

Using intelligence to mask fear

Maybe not so intellectual

I laugh at your pretentious sneer

You Want Everyone To Coexist

You want everyone to coexist
Just as long as you get the benefit of the doubt
It’s a posh life dining with millionaires
Rallying for the cause you hypocritically shout
Your high rise has digital locks
Believing reports of Global Warming
You’re safe in your rarified air
With common folk exposed when it’s storming
Don’t tell me how to live my life
Your arguments are invalid anyway
I’m smart enough to filter information
Please just go back to oppressing the PTA
