Untitled 2.1

The vice president vs. the vice president hopeful
Twitter is aflutter with the bitter and the witty tricksters
Oh, and here we all are! Reaping the rewards of our own stupidity!
Sense and sensibility are not one and the same and are certainly not on display
here tonight, or ever, it seems these days
One of the few times I looked you didn't seem engaged
so I turned to what I know best, cynicism and masked humour
All the newspapers will brim with the punditry of a thousand assholes
sucking off and creating the very system they claim to eschew
The common man, busy with the business of keeping one's head above water
Runs the gamut of emotion at such a powerful potion that is hope
It feeds us like sugar, we keep crashing on it
but we go back for more, time and again
The viral species that we have become craves a sound byte or two
for the water cooler tomorrow, you understand...
It's hard to make it if you don't know what's going on
And what's going on is anybody's opinion, isn't it?
