Throwback Thursday Poetry: Social Studies

here you see
the Preps
with their stylish clothes and perky faces
they remain happy with thoughts of angles
the people who attend church every Sunday
and buy their children cars for their 16th birthday

here you see
the Gangsta’s
with their gold chains and sideways caps
they look over exaggerate the way they talk and act
the people who speak english worse than immigrants
they brag constantly about their accomplishments

here you see
the Punks
with their green hair and Mohawks
they think the world hates them though it does not
the people who look weird just to be different
look like a Picasso painting on canvas

here you see
the Goths
with their dark clothes and morbid minds
they think about death all the time
the people who frighten the other groups of the world
will continue to do so with the smirk of a girl

Throwback Thursday Poetry: Steps to Insanity

the time has come to say goodbye
i am no longer able to cry
this life has been a wild ride
somehow i have lost my pride

it will be rough as i glide
to the underworld after i die
Satan will laugh as i try
to escape from the Hives

do not ask how or why
it has gone before my eyes
i must now try to decide
to make it right or lose my mind
