Counterfeit World

It’s not always as it seems

And rarely turns out the ways you want

But that’s life

This is what we’re given to work with

You got the liars

The cheats

The low-down, no-goods

The special ones, who won’t explain the rules

But don’t worry about it,

Because they don’t play by their own rules, anyway

They like to make it up

As they cruise along

As long as it works out in their favor

That’s how it’s going to be

The fakes, the thieves

And just so you’re not surprised,

They’re everywhere

They’re the ones who sell you

Tickets to the show,

Fed complete with all the lines,

All the bullshit

And the world is full of them

The counterfeit producing,

Bullshit artists

The ones with the pretty smiles

And the swaggered walks

So take a look around

And if you start to pay attention

You’ll see them everywhere,

Spread out

And sucking on the life

Of this beautiful,

Counterfeit world

  1. Popped in from Beth’s place… Fits in with her ‘shade of grey half off’.
    Also reminds me of all the scam spoofed telemarketers.

    And yet there is beauty too. The beauty of the grandchildren and the changing weather that takes my time away from visiting. But such is life.

    Be well and do write about the good. There is a fine balance that we can tip in the direction of hope. So when you get the chance, always open Pandora’s box. 🙂
