Let’s do our best to stand against the test of time. (For bmo)


there’s no fooling you
I knew that the second we met
fools may suffer and you’re none the sadder for it

wisdom foretold
wisdom forestalled
cut off the ends and watch nothing meet

high as a kite
doing my best to stay out of the fray
sometimes the fray turns out to be your strongest ally

the robot strikes a confessional tone
the robot knows more than all of you put together and the robot is more human than any of you will ever be
you’re damn right the robot strikes a confrontational pose when too many adults around her have let her down

it’s not rocket science
it shouldn’t take a genius to figure this one out
stop your messing around because you will be found out

rubbing salt into an open wound
our society feeds on others’ misfortune
let’s rise above the muckrakers and make something out of our lives we can be proud of.
