Curtain Pulled Back

12/26/21 Time I make a splash Got to fulfill important tasks Can't rely on hiding behind masks It won't always be what you asked Staying intact or full of bug splats Broken and cracked windshield glass The wings of bats Continuing to flap Before returning to the cave for a nap Out to get snacks Packs of rats Eating trash Watching their backs Looking out for cats And traps In a flash Another clash On train tracks Or in the grass Followed by maggots and gnats It had nothing to do with cash Just the way of the animal world, real facts No cap Comprehend and imagine that A lot comes with a catch It goes by fast The good things in life rarely last Live a life full of laughs And have a blast Close and far from flax Just about everything getting a tax Whether or not in burlap sacks Often outmatched Souls being snatched By the batch Evidence buried underneath a hatch With a locked latch Hundreds of feet below a vegetable patch Never went to mass Pushed it to the max Then ran out of gas So I ate some bass Then took a dab of wax Back to work on this obstacle I slash And smash I'm causing cracks From swinging my pickaxe Originally, I was barely making a scratch For the last time I'll rehash It was slapdash So there was backlash Wrote about it in my raps Often I'd relapse Perhaps It's time I detach from all this crap Too many chaps Obsessed over apps And others fighting over scraps The curtains getting pulled back Not going to keep it under wraps Before it all turns to ash Learn from the past And other despicable acts As time continues to pass What's the haps Do you truly have a clue? Do you know the half Or are you an ignorant ass? People harass Cause others to feel like an outcast No wonder they eventually snap And are full of wrath Causing bloodbaths This is turning into a plague, not a rash Why are we going down this path Where most burn and crash
