Woe To The Self-Destructive! - Poem by Yoni Assis
Woe to the misfits!
Those who dwell right beneath the surface
Wastrels with no purpose
“I’m not lazy, just uninspired”
Maybe that’s why you were fired
Woe to the debauched!
Those who wallow in raunch
Their perversions, staunch
“We pay homage to Caligula, Epicurus and de Sade”
Woe to the junkies!
Those addled-brained flunkies
“Let’s get another round! ”
Beat that dead horse to the ground
Woe to the crass!
Those bereft of class
Cracking wise about their ass
“He, he, bodily functions are cool”
Only if you happen to be two
Woe to the selfish and vain!
Those who care not of others pain
Who constantly check their mane
“Don’t you wish you were me? ”
Not from what I see
Woe to those who think of today and not tomorrow!
Those who won’t hesitate to beg and borrow
Their consequences will be sorrow
“Live for the moment! ”
And what of the rent?
Woe to the self-destructive!
Your day is here
The piper must be paid
What will we say?
