Read all about…

Wait 
Why do we know
Everything that can be known
About the life and times
Of every passersby 
In the media 
Standby 
Yet

Still don’t know
Who rocks the vote 
Until we are too old 
To reap the benefits
Of the cash stash
That was slashed
Back when we were
Twenteen

And when did it become
Priority
To know every word 
To every pop song
That breaks through
The speakers of society’s stereo 

Yet we can’t recite 
The words
Words 
Words
That have shaped
A world unknown
To the passerby 
Of everyday life

Now here comes 
The latest news

Standby…
