Don’t believe what you see
It is all an illusion
Call me the puppet master
Is she who she calms to be?
Ya’ll don’t know, but worship
The ground she walks on
She made a song and dedicated it to ya’ll
Bow down
Life is but a dream
Because she is showing ya’ll what ya’ll want to see
I see through it all and couldn’t care less about it
She don’t do nothing for me or mine
Don’t let what you see
Be the things that lead you
To drink from the well of deception
It is but an illusion

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
