Holiday Propaganda

img_2184
Have you ever stopped to ask why
It is that you buy into all the lies
Sold in countless advertisements
That infiltrate our daily way of life
Influencing more than what we buy
To purchase our holiday excitement

All for a great cause with a cost
Gift wrapped in our traditions lost
Manufactured retailed happiness
Artificially bought into the thought
That giving matters as we’re taught
So we greet the season’s nastiness

Where shall we begin, let’s pretend
Spending our time together ends
The purchase of lasting memories
Discounted for family and friends
Gathering with the love to defend
Blessings less financial jeopardy

“I’m just a girl in the world…that’s all you’ll let me be...” Southern California Native who gets in trouble for sarcasm, suffers from bouts of OCD, and listens to an eclectic range of music really, really loud especially while driving too fast. Turn up the Rap, R&B, Punk, Billy, Indie, Alternative, Classic, Folk, Metal, and Grunge, Melodic, Industrial, Electronic, Soul and so on you get the point.

I love to hear from you, so drop me a line here - Thanks!
