neurotic society

We’re living in a joke time, metaphorical coke time
Commerce and guru men, run the whole world man
Drunken debauchery, old world brutality
Cold world kills softly, whole world runs savagely
Reading into prior things, program TV screens
Quick scam and drag queens, real likely to blast fiends
Think twice and past dreams, crime if you ask clean
Quick fast, for poison has entered the blood stream
Psychological master, consequences of tragedy
Mythological characters, men and women is parody
Superficial the vanity, borderline the insanity
Out of order humanity, crime committed so passively
Desperados and casualties, corporations want batteries
Explanations of strategies, domination and mastery
Own zones and the bankrupt grown people, so corrupt
Vice lords and yellow men, junkies and popularity
Culture so independent, vultures scavenge reality
Past, feel the depravity, decaying social cavity
Preying on human ignorance, popular immorality
Sympathy, disease head, population misled
Self indulgent past dead, absence of the God head
Pimps, pushers and,
Nepotism, no artistery
Despotism and privacy
Desperation, dishonesty
Physicist is your policy, more money, less equality
Inflated global ego, imitating reality
Fuel cycle pharaoh, poisonous poison arrows
Hypocritics on salary, idle hands that was agency
Predisposed to complacency, jealousy, audacity
Contagious social gluttony, stages of mass belignency
Effort to make conception, generation in atrophy
Glam life in debt, scam life in editors
Byproducts of neglect children hiding from crediters
Absence of self respect, fully scared of competitors
Lifestyle of luxury at someone’s expense
Sensitive children, used up and sacrificed
Blind to the consequence, smoked up on dope pipes
Ecstasy, fast life, recklessly past life
Narcotics and cash fight in this neurotic society
Benefactors turned actors, addictions triple captors
Experience manufactures in this neurotic toxic society

It’s like post-war, they looking for the commenters or who the marxs is
Ten thousand pictures on Facebook, it’s like the pot callin’ the kettle narcissist
Come on really, sayin’ it’s the devil, but you’re the chief arsonist
Hypocrites can’t even see their own part in it
No reflection, vampire paradigm
No introspection, break down
Three months before pure obsession, picture can’t take down
Children, this a shake down, they just lookin’ for a sacrifice
They been doin’ this since before Bobby Darin sang Mack the Knife
Before James Dean’s car did a jack knife
Perhaps it’s because they lack life or lack guts
Never confuse the head with the butt
Opinions are like assholes and most of ’em stink
I was told by a woman, so rethink, don’t ever let them ever lead you to drink
Leave you to doubt, lead you to fall
Get up, stand us, pass Lucifer out
Shake it up baby, watch them twist it and shout
Insecure assholes lookin’ for a ticket
To ride on somebody like the picket, it’s fuckin’ wicked, shame on ’em
This neurotic toxic society

    • Hi Michelle, thanks so much for your comment. I wish I could take the credit for this body of work but it’s all the lyrical prowess of Ms.Lauryn Hill. Everything else on this site is my own poetry though. Hope it measures up!Respect.

      • Yes, after I read the words and flashed on the image of Ms. Lauryn Hill — I got it 🙂 No matter, thank you for posting and the reminder of her genius despite her current woes. We keep the faith — and your site more than measures up to Ms Hill. Respect. ms m
