Sad Music

There isn’t sad enough music for modern times.

We need a new pop sensation, one who’s

More inclined to stay home.

Clubbing and raving and fucking?

Oh my,

Not a lot of young people I know

Can afford to roam,

Fuck, love, risk, reward

None of it. Not unless

You prioritize, I guess.

Is that what I do?

Prioritize?

Or am I just lucky,

I found someone who does more than just

Empathize.

I know that I am lucky,

It’s obvious. I am carrying pain

I should let go of, but the news

Jesus Christ the news

And the traffic

And the weather

And the food

And the debts

And the payments

And overwhelming aching in my brain that knows that the earth is dying and that we’re all completely fucking

Doomed.
