But Really, (really) Fake

New York City

What if you quit?
I’ll wait for that answer till doomsday
Churchill discussed this topic at
length to the bullets and speakeasy-like
culture of tyrants but eventually
rode high

What if you enlisted and won by accident?
I’m no patriot to razzle-dazzle but I am
mighty sore at eyes that stare for free
demand no payment
yet accept nothing less than the best
a newborn, at that!
Wisdom looks funny
to the uninitiated
that’s why
sparkles usually fly off the shelves
sparkles of any quality

Lord Bison

Jazz-soaked spirit running circles around despair...or something like that. Really. Lover of words, lover of being in worlds free...just...free. New Yorker, artist, Virgo besieged by airhead tendencies akin to Libra moves. Bronx is home base. Began an obsession with writing at seven and twenty-odd years hence, still at it. Enjoy/love/hate/be bored/appreciate to your heart's content. Or something like that. http://www.lbisonartist.com
