It's Cultural

It’s Cultural hypocrisy,
Like monks selling books on oxford street,
Like a political debate on your screens, 
Like when Donald lost Queen Lizzy.

R.I.P to lil peep!
And the other 2 million that died this week,
XXX faked his own death,
And it only matters if you’ve trend-set.

It’s cultural insanity,
Like Grenfall tower’s insurance fees,
The 3,000 suicides a week,
And the worst one; Love Island on your screens. 

Meghan Markle’s family send their best,
Kanye says he loves Kanye West,
Like doing the floss at a dentist,
It only matters if you’ve trend-set. 

It’s cultural satire comedy,
Like playing Fortnite for 2 weeks,
A hobo getting mad cause you gave him 10p,
Proudly sharing your insecurities.

I’m a vegan but sometimes I like to eat beef,
But don’t get mad, I have ADHD,
I love labels, in fact I’m obsessed,
And it only matters if you’ve trend set.

It’s culture clarity,
Like watching porn and not clearing your history,
And thinking you're as safe as safe can be,
And then seeing ads about small willies.

But none of that applies to me,
I’m obviously talking theoretically,
Changing subject...  Can Ant survive without Dec?
Too soon? Or simply the latest trendset?

It’s cultural spirituality,
And I achieved enlightenment when I was three,
And then forgot what it all means,
And now I’m depressed.

It must be cause I read it on the news, 
And in the papers so it must be true, 
Or was it fake? I sometimes forget,
Too distracted by all the trend-sets.

It’s culture profanity,
Like your mum telling you it’s avocado for tea,
Like your grandma offering to buy you weed,
Was that just me? 

I totally detest avocado for dinner,
And parents who buy their kids fidget spinners,
My patience I admit, is on the edge,
I’m sick to death of all these trend-sets.

Since when was an opinion as valid as a fact? 
Since when was it ok to believe the earth is ing flat? 
And we sit and wonder why we’re all so incest, 
Its cause you only matters if you trendset 

Yes, this culture is distracting me 
And stopping me from finding peace,
By making me want to make money,
And tempting me with comedy. 

So I’ll end this poem with some advice,
And I’ll try my best to make it nice,
To have a nice life, and live the best,
Do everything and anything, apart from trend-set. 

It’s cultural.
