Live Fast Die Faster Modern Life Is A....... - Poem by Daniel Hooks

Live fast
Die faster
Modern life’s a disaster
Fast food
Fast cars
And cyber sex monkeys
T.V junkies
Easy hunnies
And playboy bunnies
Designer drugs
Bad religion
Caught up in superstition
Rolex watches and bling
Wanting to be a king or queen
Or at least seen
Gambling for kicks
Sex drugs and alcohol and movie flicks
Our heroes are self indulgent freaks
Reinventing their cheeks
And facial features with plastic.
Elastic knickers and kickers from sweatshops
While the workers drain the tear drops from their eyes and dream of being well off like us
A modern life full of pus
Living in the mirror of death and its hideous overbearing stench
Of the wench that is modern life! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
