Poetic Headlines


Absent minded pedestrians walk in misdirected lines
Set by designers before them
Suicidal leprechauns from Ireland migrate to hedonistic lifestyles
Of marijuana and cocaine lines

Prostitute jungles of men and women
Dining in groups of four to consume a Friday night
Thinking processes degraded through media manipulation
And methodologies of control

Advertising hipster slogans and postmodern catastrophes
Of meaninglessness and sedation
Hopefully finding love in a culture that reproduces
Men and women through lollipop factories in Indonesia

DNA programming sets us up to multiply and be fruitful
Until the species made itself extinct
Slight variations in abstract environments and big cities
Cultural differences can be observed

Through linguistic tools and media projections
It is thought that humanity can be observed
And historical and scientific understanding can perpetuate the idea
That humanity can be observed

Humanity is being observed.
