Cannibalizing Our Youth - Poem by Twiggy C. Tubercio

Disgusting looks to the one you applauded
To whose opinions and ways you nodded
Agreeing with every standard to his lifestyle
Then passing at a chain with the down ended smile
First glance at hypocrisy, but listening to its view
Choosing to listen until your face turns blue
Then you turn around and become the most beautiful monster created

And scream at the one you say you debated
I HATE you, and all of your incriminating family
Cannibalizing the very thing that created you
I don't hope you and your group of followers are happy
All of you self ascending lookers need to get a clue
The ones you hate, are the ones that would save your life in a heartbeat

Though the ones you hate, hate you even more
How can you judge a stranger in the street
Judge what you know about you before
Drowning in the brook
They could save your life
So you can give them another dirty look

    A cannibalizing poem! Gee, I can feel the shivers in my spine already! Still, an applause for you. The words you wrote are simple but advanced, the environment is easy to feel and what you wrote about is truly true. Another 10! (Report) Reply

    This poem is more understandable to me after reading 'In This House'. I am thinking that the two poems are related to the same environment. (Report) Reply
