    hollywood entrapment

    oh child with eyes so bright
    who's dreams of plastic started young
    flashy lights for a stardom future
    to be sold on an idea from venomous tongues
    a world widescreen flattery
    that grips your little mind with illusions
    to place your god given heart
    into a trash bin full of pollution
    there are simple technologies just for you
    to make you bigger than yourself
    to help you achieve a better you
    or to become simply someone else
    who will be there to make you think different
    and who will come forward and tell
    that when lucy went for the diamond
    from the sky she fell

    Clever write. Venomous toungues indeed...like mental rape. From human to product. It takes a sharp set of eyes to see this. I applaud your sight.

    You are so renting space in my head!!!!

    Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.

    T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
