“Why? Everyone seems quite mad here…

Fear is hate and hate is dear

Everything is skewed and queer

Why am I listed in the credits as King Lear?”~ The Queen

 

“Once Upon a speck of dust in time

This cat I know, busted a rhyme.

Linguistic synaptics spun, rang the chime.

One dreamer’s human being, another’s Optimus Prime.”~ 

The Cheshire Cat, you know…the Dude with the Hat~

Potbellied Sneetches, societal leaches

Beautifully polished, core rotten peaches

Diatribes and vitriol vomited screeches

Contrived constricting conspiratorial speeches

 

One day they’re happy

The next day they’re sad

One day they’re good

The next day they’re bad

 

One day they’re real

The next day they’re fake

One day they give

The next day they take

 

Yesterday’s hero, tomorrow’s goat

Yesterday’s rumor, tomorrow’s quote

Who is the Captain sailing this boat?

I might as well go and bathe in my moat!

 

Think because I’m the Queen I have sway?

I did not plot the roles to this fucking play

Busy hiding my money and getting my whey

A girl’s only got so much time in her day

 

There are breasts to augment

And a face to unslack

Lips to plump up

And a twerker to whack

 

I’ve “Illuminati” to meet

Crop circles to riddle

“Reptiles” to greet

And budgets to fiddle

 

Presidents to unseat

And kingdoms to diddle

Banks to take over

And lobbyists to griddle

 

There are Corgis to walk

And speeches to write

Flockers to hawk

And Gawkers to blight

 

There’s buttons to push

And bombs to be dropped

Plots with the Bushes

And heads to be lopped

 

I’ve Parliaments to seat

And ribbons to cut

Dinners to eat

And companies to shut

 

Environments to pollute

Funds to be raised

Media to convolute

Fans to be crazed

 

Monarchs to activate

Aliens to procreate

Sneetches to masturbate

Fucking Rabbit!  He’s always late!

 

There’s DNA to clone

And UFO’s to Hyde

Toxins to breed

And disperse in the skies

 

There are palms to grease

And dimes to mint

Sheep to fleece

And bills to print

 

Phones to tap

Heretics to inquisite

Toy mice to trap

Army bases to visit

 

False flags to stage

And favors to buy

Enemies to cage

And pretenders who vie

 

Spring Cleaning?  Must confess

Fukashima such a mess!

Top it off? Can’t find a fucking dress

To appease Perez Hilton’s bitter press!

 

One day I’m the Queen

The next day I’m Satan

One day they love me

The next day, they’re hating

 

Yesterday’s ally, tomorrow’s foe

Yesterday’s headlights, tomorrow’s doe

Yesterday’s pickle, tomorrow’s tickle

Sneetches are fickle? How apropos?

 

 

Potbellied Sneetches, societal leaches

Beautifully polished, core rotten peaches

Diatribes and vitriol vomited screeches

Contrived constricting conspiratorial speeches

 

Each and every day

With these sneetches I must stay

Listen to sneetches wearily bray

Can’t all these sneetches just go away?

 

Find an alternate dimension to play?

Go rain on someone else’s parade!

Stop blaming me for beds you’ve made!

This is the hand that you have played!

 

Logical consequences only seem a bitch

When every scratch you seek to itch

You sold the farm and bought the pitch

You dug your hole so here’s your ditch

 

Now excuse me, I have bills to pay

Crown jewels to insure

Yachts sailing the bay

A pedicure to procure

 

Destruction for sneetches?

Not on my calendar today~.

Powerful indeed!!! Loved it to the last line, it's amazing what we choose to see and do, how shallow we are in general. You hit the nail on the head with this one. Thanks
