From my pedestal


there are no heroes
on the frontline
only dreams of bravery
that we tell when
times are going bad

my weapons of injustice
cause much suffering
but I feel comfortable
in my lounge room
while the television
tells me what to think

changing channels…

gogglebox lowers my IQ

and for a brief moment
all the bullshit turns
to fucking fairy floss

while the car ads
make me want to
learn to drive

but I won’t
