The mirror and I were never friends
but at least we could see eye to eye
now my sagging resilience descends
while I look away and just sigh.

Reality TV

Pandora called to vent about
her box's glaring lack
of morals and began to shout
until they answered back

"It seems to us the problem's there
and not our glut of smut
if you don't like the filth we air
then keep your peepers shut!"

To write about life you must live it
To understand love simply give it
To profit from pain you must bear it
To make a gain meaningful share it.

Decay and death surround me
contrivances confound me
while I endeavor simply to exist
my means are less than meager
my outlook not so eager
but still I raise a fierce defiant fist

I will continue trying
to keep my dream from dying
despite the drudgery I can't avoid
these chains are not in fashion
and can’t restrain my passion
in order for success to be enjoyed

Count on It

I don't care one iota
about your quota
so please just go take a hike
for I'm extending
one number unbending
though it's not the digit you'd like.
