I Am Santo

Home / Uncategorized /

Can I get a witness?
This business
This lack of fitness
Society’s winless
Fat of the land
Buying name brand
Feeling it’s grand
Worshiping the bland
Celebrity bandwagon
Promoting label braggin’
Fighting age saggin’
Stretchmarks get tongues waggin’
Come on, it’s on
Turn off, go blonde
Hang loose, tan bronze
Booksmarts are gone!
Vanished like Casper
Jibbering like Jasper
Inbred cousin purse snatcher
Nancy Grace lovin’ bastard.
I ask her
About character
About what factor
Makes her matter
Because shit,
Show a tit
And a nitwit
Throws a fit
But engage
With caustic rage
And the turned page
Is sage.
Forgive and forget
Leave the inept adept
Climb walls made wet
From the spit of suspect
Did I mention?
This clumsy contention
That your errant attention
Is alerted
And diverted
When pleasure inverted
Isn’t called perverted
But the act of love
Blessed from above
What we dream of
Cover eyes with a glove
This book forbids
So close eyelids
Or use leaves from figs
To hide your disgrace
But don’t erase
Those prizes of faith
Loaded just in case
With lead teeth ready to bite
With the urge to itch scratch fight
With the dark let there be light
Such in site.
Such insight.
