Click,
flip the channels.
See the fake smiles.
The lack ofbody-fat.
      The templates for ourlives.
Beauty sells as well as sex.
     Skin care and long-distanceplans.
          Censors,
  regulatingour thoughts
    and our morals.
It's okay tobe different.
    Just stay out of the way.
Weare all equal,
          but I am prettier thanyou.
That doesn't mean I won't kissyou,
       and lie about itlater.
Click,
          events
               blown out of proportion.
Made tragic orevil
     by cue cards.
Publicity makesthe horrible
average
     bearable.
Turn itoff.
  Before you rot your brain.
