Follywood Follyhood

20171012_231426

married couples leave their spouses

to embrace actors all for the camera

scenes played out as an altered reality

escape from reality, but real motions

real people playing escape from their actions

do bad actions count if done for the camera

do wrong doings count in the real world

done in the real world for the non-real world

does the Book of Life noted sins done for the show

under the pretense of a fictional character

but actually done and recorded for eternity

 

all that jazz and folly

hanoi actors directly causing compatriots’ death

script players playing devil’s advocate

realistically playing into the enemy’s hand, serve it

on the home-front acting for the sake of livelihood too follyhood

play on people’s psychology to get them to buy

play on their emotions, don’t let them feel sold

just make sure you close the deal

make struggling common-folk numb as they pull out their card

artistic talent siphoned and diluted for lucrative spam

 

all the posts and facts in the world

all the red alerts will not get the nation to change

get it off the left and right onto the straight

path of the just not man-made justified

all the wake-up calls all continue to slumber

all the green screens, blue screens, smoke screens

even when you know on screen it’s all fake blood

you know it and hate that you know it

because you also know the truth that’s suppressed

because, no matter what, the show must go on
