Haywire - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Nothing really seems,
What today it should mean.
And 'anything' and 'everything'...
Is inspired,
To go haywire.

Pockets thin are getting leaner.
Empty dreams have left a vacancy.
And the people even meaner...
Demeaning themselves and others,
With an encouragement at every scene.

And beneath from the gutters,
We are being teased to release sleaze.
To keep this real with sex appeal.
Revealing more skin to expose and show!
