A Gray Flannel World


It’s a microwave world in TV dinner town

paper souls and styrofoam meltdown

C students at best and flat lined bald heads

the only pulses beat from the graveyard dead

sensitive classes and dog food kitchens

while yellow chickens are still bitching

gone are the psychedelics and the shoeless bums

everything is clean, sterile, men without thumbs

adrenaline is outlawed and so is fun

a thermostat turned off the sun

roads are safe again because they’re gone

risk is illegal and the dusk is dawn

everything is cool and banal is the way

language costs money if you need a say

big brother and little brother all the same

everyone is blind but lost their canes
