Designer People

Every day, there’s a flock of designer people
flaunting everything they own, their mannequin
lives fit into designer purses and clothing
there’s nothing else to show for their “talents,”
these pawns have appearances to maintain
constant polishing and re-polishing for that
artificial shine; there’s never a dull moment
in their sparkling exteriors; every day is
a brand-new occasion to show off.

Get Unplugged

Most people would rather get drunk
on a lie rather than breathe freely
in the truth. I wonder why everything
works in reverse! The powers-to-be paint
lies with beautiful colors; their paintings are
accepted as truth and sold as
masterpieces to confuse the masses.

Get unplugged from the blind
leading the blind mentality, step out
of the assembly line, and walk away
from this messed up society the majority
loves and holds so dearly to their hearts.
Many have become too accepting
of things they know in their hearts
and minds are wrong; they keep jumping
on the manipulation bandwagon
because everyone else is doing it.
