the tie

look at me
look at me
see my fake tie
see the yolk that bounds me
my tie may be fancy or cheap
stained or clean 
no matter because its really a chain 
all you see is the tie and the joke 
be rude, be angry, be disgusted, be envy 
and i with my plastic smile shall greet you with sincere 
 for my tie dictates me to 
the tie most will love to wear for the tie may mean a stable future and a nice income 
but beware the tie warps all great minds greed or resentment may be next
this tie my tie that dictates me i will rise above and reach my hand in your hand 
i shall be human again and help lead the way back to generousity
