Television


10 pm news lights up the dark room
Television singing the daily news
Gay boy beaten blue left in an alley
It's a political game with no winner
Love is not love anymore
It is commercialized
Selling yourself
To the highest bidder
The richest kisser
Spends hundreds on you buys flowers and chocolate
Ensuring their relationship status on Facebook
If you're a girl who likes girls
They'll adore you for all the wrong reasons
And god forbid you're a boy
Who likes boys
End up kicked out homeless at seventeen
Or beaten like the bruised boy on TV
11 pm news turned off eyes shut
Praying that you or anyone you love
Doesn't end up on television
