FRIDAY 31st JULY 2009.

Nascency, food, sapience, text,
Keep us earthbound,
Keep us annexed.

Scholarship, work, consumption, tax,
Keep us aground,
Keep us exact.

Alcohol, pills, cigarettes, sex,
Keep us all down,
Keep us in check.

Lottery, sport, gambling, stress,
Keep us around,
Keep us in debt

Retirement, age, penury, death,
Keep us in town,
Keep us enmeshed.

  1. I had to look up a few of the words you wrote. They meant pretty much what I thought they would. I like the point you're making here and I certainly agree. It reminds me of how workers "got" their weekends - to prevent rebellion. "I ain't gonna work on maggie's farm no more." We are annexed & incorporated into corporations. They give us bread & circuses to distract us from the plows we pull. A friend told me that rock and roll gave us a virtual rebellion to prevent a real one. I think he was right. I'm starting to become more aware of rhythm & rhyme. Thanks
