GRUMPY OLD-FART BLUES




Appearance becomes the only relevancy!

Wilted wall flowers, we,
At the Celebutante Ball.
Catchphrase Bingo;
Spin-Doctor dervish -
Shape trumps mass.

News packaged and marketed;
Time measured tweet-by-tweet;
We consume and regurgitate it:
Toxic potions, notions of beauty;
Cancerous germs of fearful hate.

Instead of many parts / one body,
We each yearn to become noses,
Reshaped by societal rhynoplasty -
Cookie-cutter corporate conformity,
In the name of selfish individuality.

Appearance became the only relevancy.
