A Beaming Grin

Spread so thin

My weak pale skin

Feels the burning sun

Ripping my bones

To the floor

Burden on my chest

Should we cancel it all

Put it to rest

Here we go

With little known

Make profit so we can show

All the skeptics the value of good

Or just let go

Let the piranhas win

Eat my flesh

Tear off my skin

Keep the capitalists happy

With a beaming grin

 

The Next Frontier

What comes next

I’m ready

For what is around the corner

Bring the post-internet revolution

Empty pockets

With great indifference

Hold on

Changing seas are raging ahead

Where the frontier of the future

Will bring

Hold hope

Smile

Sing

What makes money now

Will not later

What made money yesterday

Will not today

What will the future bring

Uncertainty and anger

But certainly, opportunity

Unfair In Comparison

The unfair game of comparison

Looking with a wry grin

The eyes of society

On one

Compared to another

I do not disagree

In football

Or some game of indignity

Comparison and contrast

There is no better or worse

Unless the views

Challenge your own chorus

Verse

So the wings of reality

Cry fowl play

When the image does not line

Up with

Reality

Why compare

Why win or lose

These games we play

We should just cut loose
