    What do you have? Oh,please let me see. How
    expensive is your image,the cost of popularity?
    How new are you in the novelty of a trend,in a
    game that you can't win.But one you have to play
    just to keep up with today. I hate every day
    untill the end.
    Trendy tricks and politics,masses marvel at this
    monster...Working away,earning your pay,for the
    games they say we ought to play. Magazines and
    beautiqueens,what does this mean on my T.V.
    screen? Buy new improved? but the ld ws never
    used,and the unsold sat to decay.
    The economic empire sells a warpped up,packaged
    lifestyle...Processed feed,the stuff we need and
    trinkets to taunt your greed. Still,they suck on
    the nipples of our "great" corporate mothers,
    who feed us untill we smother,as we buy up all the
    clutter that we some day throw away.
    Why buy,sell,trade,then someday fade when I know
    my time ain't here to stay? I must ezcape this
    town with all its ruckes before I'm sold as a
    clown in society's circus. No place for chasing
    and playing with trends. Who needs to compete
    against their friends? I need some to free my
    mind,and then decide what might be important to me
    in some way. :deal: ;)
