What Natalie Portman was really talking about

Messages-so many messages
got the girls screaming,
got the women leaning
on walls to catch their breath,
confusion is the anti-drug
that leaves our lives bereft.
We can’t get to dreaming,
we can’t get to life,
we just live in bewilderment-
confused unable to thrive.
Women and girls get conflicting
conflicting messages all the time
from media that tells us one thing
while the other thing exist alongside
so we can’t accept the reality
because girls and women get confused
like a virgin in a bikini
it leaves a girl with nothing to do
but cringe and think about
how it makes her feel
that a girl could wear a bikini
and be a virgin too
it’s just that feminist has all
the girls and women confused
society says one thing
but they say that we choose
a feminist lives to tell you
it’s a bikini or virtue

Grieving wrong

Trying too hard
is trying too hard
grieving so wrong
yes you can grieve wrong
walking on the grave
sitting on the dead
fuck the damn headstone
get it while it’s fresh
walk on memory
rewrite history
make yourself the victim
because you’re amazing
cover up the badge
and keep on dancing
just like the engagement
this is just recasting
trying too hard
is really quite telling
trying too hard
to keep that ass selling
on to the next
while you’re eating on his grave
just fucked the headstone
make that million dollar O face

Show folks and carni kids

Put it in perspective
put it your mind
that everything is different
from various other sides
do you have a blanket
or even just a couch?
Do you own a car or
have a pool to test out?
Sometimes you never see
the things that do exist
if you’ve ever owned a monkey
I’m tired of your shit
every tear that’s shed
is a tear for us to drink
your mental health has cost
and you can afford that shrink
so cry me a fucking river
and fill that river with cash
if I should feel sorry for Justin Bieber
I should get paid for that
perspective changes lots of things
turning entertainers into kings
we forget what show folk means
just carni kids that are paid to sing
so sing for me and accept your bed
if your life sucks-you’ve chosen it.

A comped meal

We know all the monsters by name
we know all the things they’ve taken
we know the blood upon their hands
and the flesh between their teeth
we know how the monsters hunt
and we know just where they sleep
we know what all they want is
we know what makes them tick
we break down all the reasons
we won’t jump on it
we know all the monsters
we know them all by name
and when they kill again
we will remember today
that everybody knew
that bastard meant to kill
but when we leave the funeral
we excuse the bill.

Teach billionaires their place

Billionaires like Elon Musk
save the day and create some stuff,
make the world a better place-
like Kylie Jenner and the Kardashian state.
They’ve saved skid row,
they’ve fed the hungry,
they gave money just for fun, see-
they have so much to give
like to Flint Michigan.
Don’t tear billionaires down
like Elon Musk-
he’s a self made man, a certified genius,
he makes jobs and distributes wealth,
though in actuality he does nothing
most of those jobs a consequence of existing
but he still has the balls to ask the poor
are we listening.
What have you done?
I’ve saved literal lives, but I’m not a billionaire
I’m just alive-
don’t blame the billionaires for lack of success
just remember when our wealthy
created orphanages.

Demi Lovato promotes sexual assault

Women think rape is funny
just like sexual assault
but only when it’s men
who are always at fault.
Women think it’s okay
to pay a woman of the night
to sexually assault the help-
it is her womanly right,
sends her to his room
she enters without permission
grabs him while he’s sleeping
but Demi owns this system
she’s a warrior who knows all
all about sexual assault
doesn’t need education
she flaunts all she has wrought
pays this man for protection
but doesn’t respect his agency
is this the truth about feminism
you’re empowered by the rape
the sexual assault of men
so we can pretend it is us
who live in fear each day?

Halsey self identifies

Halsey is
white
skin is on
sight
we took
down Rachel
but let Halsey
prevail
she says
she’s not white
but how can
that be right
when her skin’s
so light
isn’t she
self identified?

Anti is the new pink

Grimes what a little girl
oh how she loves the world
oh an anti-capitalist
she knows how lucky she is
that fans
don’t really understand
that if
she’s truly an anti capitalist
that she
she’d be doing this
for free
and don’t you say
she has to make a living
you can stay
off the grid away from doing
what you hate
and so passionately
want to destroy
but see she’s playing
with her toys
she’s got a bank account
and cashes checks to pay the bills
she’s investigated
all her boyfriend’s union deals
pretend is fine
but when you take it
quite this far
oh yes you are
a hypocrite in clothe and garb
it’s all the same
you are the company you keep
lovers that you seek
you are an extension of these
because we are
we are what we surround
he hasn’t left this ground-but
my boyfriends like so cool now.

Who is evil here

We know who you are
we know what you’ve done
we have your names
but this is for fun
we won’t kill the beast
or slay the demons
we’ll set up a feast
and eat the reasons
choke on the truth
and drink down the visions
of all the sad wrecks
the new little victims
you were of one age
when you claim your rape
you say you’re a victim
and earned justice today
that the animal no longer feeds
no longer preys in this area
but we kept him alive
to induce fear and hysteria
we let him loose
left him free just to ravage
while we make our millions
off singing empty anthems

The many methods of living in recovery

Everybody is
a mental health expert
everybody does
psychologist grade work
everybody can
tell you how to cure it
just listen to Demi Lovato
she’s got the answers
let’s learn them!
Relapse is bad
not a reality of recovery
relapse is irresponsible,
yeah,
we all should’ve seen this coming
a huge step back in the rhetoric.
It’s not about the relapse but
what you do after it,
everybody falls
but can you pick up the pieces?
If Demi Lovato thinks
relapse is not okay
maybe she should rethink
Red Bull as a choice-mmkay?
Because energy drinks are bad
for individuals living with bipolar
they are akin to Meth when
symptoms begin to take over.
Everybody thinks
they are a role model
but relapse is a real thing
living in fear is hard to swallow
if it happens to you
you will still wake up tomorrow
recovery is what you do
even after you fall
strength is in the choice
to begin all over again
relapse is okay
as long as it’s not your end.
