Arteries

Nu-sense vacant in complacence
Pension withdrawn from lifetime savings
Tendency to self-destruct when stranded
Invasive tactics of malevolence

Strike, strike, the fence is broken
Choose sides before you’re mistaken
Diplomacy dribbles down the patriarchy
Chauvinism is the new groove

Ride with it
Or sigh and seethe
Today you gloat
Tomorrow you bleed

Incense in the holy shrines of fame
Step out of line to take the blame
Fresh off the farm and still ticking
Another scapegoat fed up with living

Ride with it
You’re defined by it
The one that bit
Now framed
