Hyphenated Hyperventilating

Talking heads will give you their attached credentials with solemn aplomb And it’s plenty hyphen proof long They’ll make unlearned eyes gasp at their hyped expertise Get simpler minds to hyperventilate, as their lower rack thoughts common sense overheat Everyday, mundane pondering takes a kid table backseat The babble bobble heads, with the apron string tongues, love speaking upper shelf kitchen cabinet highbrow kitsch Momma says, the couch potato heads are always angle offering a self-serving dish Cooking up pretentious phrases, their broasted chest stuffings puffs a lot of jive-turkey bleats It all sounds ear tasty good ... got a delicious soul flavor in theory A tone semi-sweet savor worth artichoke heart half hearing Daddy says, the air bubble heads always got a shrink-wrap blurb tidbit wish But you gotta stay tuned-in to the next programmed “must-see” video lip-clip Don’t let the hyphen-attachments first guest hook you Let not your legitimate doubts be second guess fooled Talking heads will always try to tinted glass blow smooth, make you go-getter move Get your temper ta-ta’s to shimmy-shuffle to the hum-drum groove of the bad hair forecast blues Calmly gather your lung precious thoughts, allow the hyperventilating to cease Supremely, thinking serenely for yourself is a television ratings cable disease
