(Choice Words For) Mock Muckrakers

Read up bitches!

*clears throat. shucks pants*

Simplified by skin tones and
constructed from flaw afflicted reasoning
You say you do understand
conflicted though, by unimportant things

Like what would he think? What did she say?
Why's he with her? She's so out of it! And isn't he gay?

Biting backs and chewing flesh
Stains on your headscarves and jupe-skirts
False smiles never looked so fresh
On innocent faces, who's the bigger piece of work?

Big girl,fake tears dry out in the afternoon sun
Little boy, cry wolf and go Paul Revere-ing to everyone
I won't accept your judgment since we haven't had a proper conversation
So sit down and oblige a wounded man before I whip out the folds of my religion
So tell me why you hate me.

Regurgitating trash with cyclic tongues
To recruit more Myrmidons, without whistles to blow
Complot to boycott, contortions strung
To rumors spread like vicious versions of dandelion seeds
and I'm the only one who doesn't know...

That I'm stupid? I'm a liability to your shrewd clicks?
That I'm a shame to my own race? Because I'm proud of my dick?

I say hello. You pause to smile.
And then I go and read your thoughts online.

An island man. Your gang exults:
WE'VE NEVER GOTTEN TO KNOW YOU BUT EVERYTHING'S YOUR FAULT

I toughen up. And shrug you off.
You've never dealt with somebody like me. I'm a lost cause.

I won't accept your judgment since we haven't had a proper conversation
So sit down and oblige a wounded man before I whip out the folds of my religion
So tell me why you hate me.
