what kind of a world

what kind of a world

are we teaching
our children
to live in

it’s the year of our Lord
twenty-eighteen
our homes speak to us
yet we’re pushing common core math
dumbing down of our youth
we’ve lost our way
forcing political agendas
instead of teaching

in a post-apocalyptic society
when we’ve lost power

are we going to be
worried about basic
algebra?!

Don’t Tell Me Stories Of The Righteous

landscape-768556.jpg

Don’t tell me stories of the righteous
I don’t want to hear of infatuated glories
My hope dwindles & my cynicism rebounds
Whenever your lips utter their sponsored stories
I’ll let you rule the ruins of dilapidated society
Your politicians ran amok, forcing common core math
I’ll retire into the wilderness to write my manifesto
Be forewarned; if you harm my loves, you’ll feel my wrath
