Cerebral Labor

The words we speak
How clever, how cheap
With just a whisper
We turn cities into glitter

I feel the need for mourning 
No, it’s just no good
We’re just no good

What’s the use in proselytizing
The enigmatic, homophobic, problematic, religious fanatic?

Speaking words with little meaning
What’s the use in spewing words with no residual resonance?
Clicking the clicker, hoping for a flicker
Just a bit of sugary static
The manic’s are always the ones to leave everything undone

We make fun of worthless things
Wealthy women with loaded egos
Surrounded by air heads, a multitude of morons
It’s bad enough I have to endure feelings I can’t express
Must I entertain the notion of a people with good intentions?

Left captive in a cage
Stuck here, engaged in a fit of rage
I hope to negate the arrogant & obstinate
From enjoying the fruits of my cerebral labor.
