“Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”
Mannequin words put on display
Mass produced statements that slide out with ease
“How are you, sir?” I don’t know, you don’t care
So how bout we all just stop putting on airs?
Hello is the code for two humans in tandem
The connection’s official when stained with two syllables
“Good mornings” are terrible, that’s hardly fair
Most people would rather keep putting on airs
We imitate something that we’ve never seen
And we cling to illusions that we are all sane
I’ll be first to admit I’m not, I don’t care!
As long as I get to stop putting on airs
