i don't like the holidays. most are really messed up if you think about it, peace.



back with a vengeance
as the body count stacks
trade your coins for bats
and prepare to lose ability
rush facility
like troops storming for normandy
pennies to pitch
and any to lynch within an inch
of the flat screen dream
they’ll trash later for newer things
who’s the king sitting on top of garbage pal
with a lie to tale
for any kid still under the spell
pretty slick how they stick and move but you don’t flinch
robbery with a jolly face and cheek to pinch
the sweet stench of suffering over losing rent
to gain the holiday cheer for this abused event
whose intent on hurting others at their expense
resent underpaid workers scraping to get by
that could die
if trampled in belief of the good lie
merry melodies sang a fictional tune
but i conducted the truth
over what you consider gloom
