Say What No One Mentions

Avatar Author: Tad Winslow "If you don't work nothing will." Maya Angelou Read Bio

Patronizing
Facilitates fallacy
From person to person

Pop culture’s version
Of wit
Is an immersion in sarcasm—
And that is why it
Is a first class chasm
Of shit

Use your head instead
And create
Literary weight
No censor can clean slate
Or erase and enter worthless adventures
That replace and sully
The love of inventions
That are originally
Meant to be true representations
Of your inner penner’s intentions—

Say what no one mentions

    You need to watch the movie “Eat the Rich”.

    Thanks to both of you.

    @32 Squared I just looked up ‘Eat The Rich’ on Rottentomatoes.com and it got a 70% approval rating— which is very good. I’ll definitely check it out. And the cover art for the flick is excellent too— it’s a parody of a famous Norman Rockwell painting… that’s my kind of awesome! And since we’re recommending movies I’ve got a gem for you. Don’t miss ‘Exit Through The Gift Shop’. You’ll love it I promise.

    I dig it. Too often people in real life act like people they see on TV, when really, shouldn’t it be the other way around?

    It reminds me of those generic, mainstream cliches that are overused in life and writing. This was fantastic. The last line was just blunt enough to stand out from the rest of the poem. :)
