Marionette

May 2, 2018

 

As a self proclaimed abibliophobic, (one terrified of running out of things to read) and avid fan of use of the English language, I've been writing prose, poetry and lyrics for approximately fourteen years. With my other work as well as my ever controversial friend, Mu's art and projects being displayed I thought I'd share a bit of my writing. Alas, I admit I am in no way a professional writer, yet I always write with an insatiable passion for breathing the very essence of my thoughts and feelings at the time of writing. This being said, at the very least will spark some conversation.

 

How many of you all realized the best prisons are the ones that you cant see

where there's no walls no guards and the prisoners think their free

the people fighting everyday for civil rights handing in their liberties

I mean I cant be the only one to understand

as long as they keep us scared between media and broadband

they'll have us playing in the palms of their two hands

Not one man, but corporations

shaking them behind the grandstands of political fans falling for the shams, bullshit and scams of an agenda you'll never really get

causing the economy to drip like the shit is fucking wet,

where the rich sell their third cottage and act like they get to get upset

backhanded deals, buyouts and lobbyists still getting their pay cheques

the rest of us left to stress in this predetermined mess

 

Dance marionette dance

listen to what we tell you for your chance

where we tell you what to wear, who to see, how to prance on the tv

and all you have to sell is your values, and your friends and family

for a cheque, million likes and an online identity

click accept, vote it up jump in with society

thats all you gotta do to be all that you can be

 

this aint a constest, its a massacre of what left

its a slaughter like a man up on my daughter

or the architect vs the inspector, staring at the plotter

one thinking it looks good on paper the other what it takes to maker

not given a damn bought the paupers and the bakers

long as they still hang with the movers and the shakers

playing endless games and puppet shows with terrorists and fakers

How can so many be buying into the fake news industry

click bait, headlines, viral vines to instant celebrities

living the millennium like a fucking calamity

hitting the accept button as they skip the terms and conditions, selling their souls like their christian, or flinchin, brains twitchin missing basic connections giving in to all sorts of permissions

 

Dance marionette dance

listen to what we tell you for your chance

where we tell you what to wear, who to see, how to prance on the tv

and all you have to sell is your values, and your friends and family

for a cheque, million likes, a mask and online identity

click accept, vote it up jump in with society

thats all you gotta do to be all that you can be

 

instead of playing this game the way they tell me to play

I'm breaking the rules stacking the deck to do it my way

using what I learn like the tools it'll take to carve my place

regardless where they told me I'd be stuck in this race

wanting a taste, only to find that its laced

I don't care if they say I can never make it when I know I gotta push to take it

drop the excuses, procrastinating while relating to the noise on that underground station

knowing I cant be the only one seeing the relation

so you know what, lets go

I'm standing up for the roll call

tell it to the bleating grassing eating flock who still fall

tell it to the ones keeping up with the Jones's at the mall

tell it to the politicians who don't give a damn at all

 

Dance marionette dance

listen to what we tell you for your chance

where we tell you what to wear, who to see, how to prance on the tv

and all you have to sell is your values, and your friends and family

for a cheque, million likes, a mask and online identity

click accept, vote it up jump in with society

that's all you gotta do to be all that you can be
