For The Love Of Things


For the love of 'things'...
People will deceive other people.
And for the love of keeping 'things',
People will deceive other people.
To impress with bling,
People will deceive other people.
And no matter who hurts....
People want to quench their thirst,
First.

Shopping and done nonstop,
Are baubles to glimmer in eyes to gleam.
Shopping and done nonstop,
Just to flaunt...
An attention wanted.

For the love of 'things'...
People will deceive other people.
And for the love of keeping 'things',
People will deceive other people.
Shopping and done nonstop.
Affixed are the people to decadence.
Shopping and done nonstop.
Addicted and affixed to decadence.
For the love of 'things'...
People will deceive other people.
And no matter who hurts....
People want to quench their thirst,
First.

'Gimme that,
Whatcha got.'
And no matter who hurts....
People want to quench their thirst,
First.

'Gimme that,
Whatcha got.'
And no matter who hurts....
People want to quench their thirst,
First.

For the love of 'things'...
People will deceive other people.
'Gimme that,
Whatcha got.'
And no matter who hurts....
People want to quench their thirst,
First.
'Gimme that,
Whatcha got.'
For the love of 'things'.
'Gimme that,
Whatcha got.'
For the love of 'things'.
'Gimme that,
Whatcha got.'

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
