some people require more attention than others and that's okay [the even greater divide]

our lives are wasted  
 
wasted on youtube
cellphones with 3g or 4g or 5000g,
whatever.
 
wasted on fancy shoes that light up
cars designed to go faster
than ever could be needed.
 
wasted on internet porn
touchy tv show wrap ups
that never come close to touching what it's actually like
in reality.
 
wasted on britney spears
lindsay lohan
the olsen twins
miley cyrus
and what all the tabloids have to say about them.
 
wasted on facebook, twitter
universal, paramount, fox,  
sony, playstation
mircosoft, xbox.
 
wasted on fast food advertisements
mcdonalds, burger king, tacobell, arby's
coke and pepsi
fucking energy drinks.
 
 
honey boo boo
 
i'll say it again
 
honey frickin boo boo.
 
 
wasted on plastic surgery, plastic containers, dating websites,
trendy chewing gum, walmart, reailty tv, ipods, the new england patriots, penis enhancement drugs, talk shows, chanel dresses for your dog, a million and one books about vampires, epic meal time, concerts that cost hundreds of dollars a ticket, cosmetics, painkillers, nuclear weapons, dubstep, the DMV, health insurance, car insurance, house insurance, life insurance, the mall, electric can openers, lawn mowers you ride on, houses that could comfortably fit a small community, credit cards, airplanes, bratzdolls, war, scientology, HBO, showtime, 3D television, fashion magazines, money.
 
grateful to be alive
but what's the cost?
