Modern Day "Heroes"

The Bacon Cat Legging Society

I'm a crumpled letter,

Dirty and war torn

dragged through the mud...

and the blood

by some man who went before

Now I'm tucked away

forgotten in this drawer.

Bygone romance of a bygone age

"They don't make them like that anymore"

War's now playfully fought on black mirrors

by soldiers in "skinny jeans"

fighting for dessert

Where's the man who would fight for me?

Now I'm a freedom fighter,

longing for the sea

which knows more of my heart

and is as old as the depths of me

but it's a fight I'll never win

papercuts from crumpled paper...

... they can't even pierce skin.
