Fundamental Issues of a Post-16


You should call me Holden Caulfield cause I think you’re so phony
Instead you call me a loser because you perceive me as lonely
But the individual will prosper
In collective you imposter

You have no authority
To question society
Because you’ve been guilty too many times
Of committing ancestral crimes

It makes me sick you’re obsessing
Over the way that you’re dressing
Look at the women you’re oppressing
The situation you’re not assessing

This is my criticism
Of your reluctance to feminism
Yes I will continue to persist
Until you capitulate, you communist

How can you be so ignorant
As well as so ambivalent
Oh I forgot you’re so blind
Now let me enlighten your mind

1. If it’s not material and don’t include you’re mums serial
You won’t recognise poverty or disease unless it’s venereal
Why do you revolve around the things that are hollow
And perpetuate a notion even though you've never swallowed

2.If you were to write an essay on life what would be your thesis?
I doubt you’d aspire beyond limitations like the modern Prometheus
Would you even understand that reference?
I doubt it because you make profanity your preference

3. Social media cannot express true emotion
Your sob story or lover’s devotion
If you’re going to document your life
Create memories not strife

4. You try so hard to accommodate to expectations
That it’s impossible to judge the authenticity of your relations
If you exploit your flaws and are no longer accepted
Then you’ll know who you should have long ago rejected

The widely held collection of post-16’s
Cater only for their wants and not their needs
Views on voting are all apathetic
And what a “loser” I am, for being poetic

    Wow. This actually flowed like a song and rhymed really well. You're not a loser, you stand up for yourself and quite right too. Never let any one stamp you down and always be yourself. Stay strong (Report) Reply

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
