Pieces of the Things We Love
(Warning: I took a MUCH darker look at the topic than other folks did.)
They say there’s a cure for us
but what they don’t disclose
is that it’s just a new disease.
But they prefer the symptoms,
they look better on TV.
A designer illness
perfected for the mainstream.
We’ll always be sick.
We only have ourselves to blame,
because the pieces of the things we love
will never fit together well enough
with the pieces of all the things
they say we’re supposed to be.
