Woody and Selena

Here come the wolves
here comes the blood
we’re in for fun
when we turn a blind eye
to the ones who we love.
Oh-girl you look like a cherub
all cheeks and a smile to cherish
but your dancing for-
but your acting for
a monster.
Do you adore him?
Think he’ll lead you to your moment
back on top-is that what your hoping
but you got lost in the game
dance, dance, dance
your way to authentic fame
the kind you don’t want, but
Woody Allen would pay
get you that trophy-
that golden statue to display.
Do you really think you walk free
without blame?
When the wolves come to feed
when the wounds begin to bleed
you’ll know Selena Gomez
enabled the fiends.

Hollywood heroes

You are not responsible
you are not to blame
when a beast breaks your bones
you should not be shamed
but when you make the choice
to live it out through silence
you have made the choice
to give silent compliance
you are not to blame
for the abuse endured
but we all have choices
and we all live with pain
sometimes we choose silence
but then heal to speak again
and that is all just fine
but in the end still know
that when you choose silence
the abuser will own the show
do not misunderstand
this goes for those with power
a child’s choice of silence
a woman on her own
a man who will be silenced
even in his home
these victims are not powerful
they do not bathe in gold
but when you have the means
know you reap what you have sown.

No country for old men

What is it that you want?
What battles have you fought?
No justice in your sights
just screaming at the night
you got hush money
but now you want something?
Won’t take him to court
but you’ll speak out for support
not just in cheers and praise
of course you want to get paid
pretending to be the hero
when you gave in to fear though
you lot are just cowards
women for themselves
you fed others to the beast
but now you condemn the crowd
for all the silence money bought
you made your choices
justice you forgot.

Katy’s umbrella

Turned a chapter
turned a page
wrote a new book
it’s all the same
hacked off her hair
still not a bride
doesn’t that ego keep
you warm at night?

Turned a chapter
changed her game
pretended to rewrite
but the words
are the same
keep pretending
you’re different
empowered and strong
pretend you’re not Katy
not Katy at all,
not the pop star
who spends tears
wishing she was just a mom.
