Natural selection

The world’s incoherent
Everything’s all reality
That just ain’t real only
Muggin’ for the camera
Then grabbin’ the cash
Violence is the new art
& actors can’t act only
Look good when they
Get their heads lopped
Off or get bit on the neck
By a beautiful vampire
Can’t even touch music
No more comes thru a
Computer can’t recall
Any memorable tunes
Since John Martyn died
& it used to be ‘I don’t
inhale’ now it’s ‘I don’t
swallow’ & a gallon of
Gas costs as much as
A can of coffee used
To cost / screw it / I’ll
Go buy me a bottle of
Water with maybe a
Little left over for air 

Gettin’ back to this
