there we are

So You Have Us

So you have us becoming plain.

We must divest ourselves before you then.
Like guilty children showing shame
Until you feel obscene rich enough.
In control enough...So
We must become plain and cast away
Dreams of dignity combined with happiness.

Is it true if I had need of you
You would pass me to another
Department of you
Like something beyond me?

We do get around.

It is true. I especially enjoyed the "Department of You" and the casting away of dreams of dignity and happiness. Plainly, we must.

Answer - £10 each way please...


They have filters to our wavelengths and droning greed that paralyses receptors of ethics and shame.
Just the same, they live behind barbed wire, all the while thinking they are free. Hehehe!!
Lovely Linda!
