Fast Track - Poem by maggie oke

They've discovered the cause of everything
No more angels no more legend no more myth
Pray if you like to the gods who have died
Only science and money will grant you your wish
The muse is a disconected line now
Poor subscription made a costly call
Moving image final defeat over lyric description
Who needs the essence when you can swallow it all?
