MINDS LIKE TOYS


Don’t cultivate result,
Cease to exist
Though for a while,
And they’ll love you,
They’ll buy you expensive,
They’ll cry to beget you,
Because you ain’t anything
But a toy.

Bosses who crave crosses
To crucify all competing creativity,
On their records is none alive
A prudent finger but theirs,
Thus we all become fools,
Courteous fools,
In order to get paid.

Men laden with years,
Tossed like a cotton grain 
In a September storm,
By a social refuse,
A moral fugitive, outcast, lunatic, everything,
Disorganised like a baby
Excited by a toy bus
Is our boss the image.
