ten thousand headlines
every day
the same sad song
sung seventy ways
lose your head
for looking up
plastic coffee
from a paper cup
racing the rats
buying the hype
untold power
out an idling pipe
quarter projections
short selling stock
biting the hands
of the ticking clock
a trillion white rabbits
in every direction
a worrisome bulge
at your own midsection
feeding on hearsay
drinking down lies
a rumble of thunder
from menacing skies

see through the smoke
tear down the veil
walk through the fire
break out of jail

challenge the system
jump out of line
swim up the river
dare to be kind

you may own seven cars
but you can only
drive one
at a time

my fave kind of verse, fast-paced hard hitting and seemingly random.

ps: i recommend some mfdoom in your playlist if he isn’t already.
